um did they just go up? I hardly smoke- most people do not even know I smoke ( I hide it and sneak around ), only like 3-7 cigs a day, and I only smoke half... and more if I go out. I am sure they are cheaper here in GA then in NY or Cali... but sheesh. I think a pack was around 5$ ... I guess still better then casino cigs ($10) This sucks because I buy them for my 83 year old Alzheimer's grandmother... that the only thing she remembers ,is that she smokes. Guess her ass is switching to an off brand... she goes through like 2-3 packs a day, she just sits and smokes and watches Lifetime TV all day ...and of course calls to ask the same stupid questions, sometime 5 times a day .. of course she loses half of them...and we see almost whole cigs in her ashtray... but I be damned if Im gonna spend 10-15$ a day on her habit. Funny thing is, everytime we take her to the doc, they say her lungs are clear as bell... health is great, just her mind is fucked. Still looks for her dog that has been dead for 25 years...and has completely forgotten the dog she had for 16 years that was put to sleep 3 years ago. damn I can never stay on topic... I am sure I have early Alzheimer's as well.
