    I have seen benson & hedges for about 32.00 a carton. Kools are like them same but they are menthols, if you like them. I thought that benson & hedges was made by phillip morris cop. In the USA, says it on the box?

    My Va slims run about $33.00 a carton with a $3 or $4 dollar off coupon.
    Phillip Morris makes alot of brands including mine and I'm pretty sure Benson and Hedges also.

    Used to smoke Kools. Started smoking because i was on Community custody and was getting UA'd twice a month. So no budda for me, and i needed some smoke in my lungs. Managed to kick the habit about a year and half ago. When i get really drunk, i'll start smoking like a champ again, though.

    over here in the UK it costs about £5 for 20 cigarettes ($10?) thats the reason why i gave up - far too expensive and also smoking makes everyday excerise a lot harder too!

    Smoking kills and we all need to find something better to do with our time. I just had a thought... if marijuana were legal, who would be looked down upon more by society: marijuana smokers, or cigarette smokers? I think marijuana smokers for the 1st 15-20 years, minimum.

    I don't smoke cigarettes,but occasionally smoke a cigar whil I fish. I like my Cigars like I like my women, Black and Mild. Swisher sweets if the black and milds aren't available.

    Anybody have a good website for a [bold]New Iron Lung?[/bold]

    I want to get the best price for one. LOL

    I lean towards a good Partagas or Macanudo if stogies are on the menu. My Dad always used to smoke White Owls or King Edwards when he took me fishing when I was a kid :)

    I actually smoke very little anymore but when I got engaged to a total blood sucking witch (don't ask) I was hitting the generics just so I could afford the 2 pack a day habit required to deal with her.

    I actually drive across state lines(5 mile trip) to a neighbor state that has much much lower taxes on smokes. The same generics are about $6 or $7 bucks more a carton here.

    I smoked from when I was 12 or 13 untill just before I turned 42. Camel non filters. I found a way to quit that worked quite well for me. I woke up at around 5:00 A.M. having a heart attack. They kept me in the hospital for 2 weeks without cigarettes. I haven't smoked since. This made the initial part of quitting easer. No will power required. I still wanted a cigarette for about a year, though. Although this method worked for me I don't think I could really recomend it to anyone else. That was November 23, 1982. I used to really complain if a cigarette machine wanted $.75 for a pack of cigarettes. I can't even imagine buying them at the price they are now. My son does, although I don't see how he can afford them.
