I accidentally came across a little item in the papers today.
Ponder upon this gem for a moment.
As far back as I can remember [which I grant isn’t quite so far these days] they have been doing their damndest to stop kids taking up the habit.
They have racked up the price to insane levels. They have banned advertising. They have hidden all smokes behind closed doors. They have banned the sale of ten cigarettes. They have made the packaging as ugly as possible. They have banned menthol cigarettes. They have banned smoking from as many places as they can. They have brainwashed kids into nagging their parents. All of this has been on top of the old law which bans the sale of cigarettes to anyone under eighteen.
Yet one in five 17-year-olds are smoking and drinking? How come?
Could it be possible that all the Anti-Smoker efforts have all been in vain? Could those efforts be nothing more than a massive irritant to smokers?
Could those Anti-Smoker “charities” be utterly useless and just a waste of public resources?
