    Cheap Cigarettes

    While searching through the attic I came across a grocery store sales receipt from December 1986. Among other things, I had purchased a carton of unfiltered Pall Mall's and a carton of Newport 100's. Each carton was $9.55.

    I was at the same store yesterday and now the cost is $62.07 per carton. That's a pretty big increase. When I stopped smoking in 2006 the price was about $26.00 a carton.

    When I was in the Navy on a ship in 1985, the snack vending machines had packs of cigs, and they were .75 cents.

      When I was 12 years old cigs were about 25 cents a pack....but I had to forge a letter to the clerk from my mom saying the cigs were for her. It worked every time.
      Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I killed because they were annoying......





      I've been wrong lots of times.  Lots of times I've thought I was wrong only to find out that I was right in the beginning.

        My best recollection was around $ 45 a carton in12' when I quit....so, about five to six cartons a month. I'm guessing my snus budget is about 1/4 of that.

            How in the world did you smoke them.....fire was not discovered until you were 15
            When it's my time to go, I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my uncle did....... Not screaming in terror like his passengers
