Die hard smokers and taxes

Die hard smokers, by the thousands countrywide, they rightly feel a bit abused…
Ouch! A latest 40% hike in price for a ciggie pack, they are definitely not amused…

Now is the time, they should be encouraged to rethink over their preference …

With rising costs, each ciggie stick costs a bomb, and financially makes a difference..

Some might swallow their pride and make e cigarettes their latest passion….

Others just might take one last long pull, called it quits as they exhale their pollution…

Those die hards who swagger on with their now expensive habits as a form of rebellion…

Are mistaken in their perception that this habit is identified with resilient and successful people..

Here in Malaysia, we are going through pretty hard times, with a new service tax and a weak ringgit..

To a man, everyone tries to hold fast to each lifestyle by stretching the buying power of the ringgit..

It makes little sense for any sane man to be literally burning the ringgit with each lighted cigarette…

During these days of weakened ringgit, it is the prudent man who does away with his cigarettes…

 While the poor spouse who nags with impatience, puts up with all the tobacco scent and smoke…

Imagine the anguish and frustration amidst the coughing fits and the perpectual swirling smoke…

Horrific images on ciggie packs are not a good deterrent, those who smoke hardly spare a look…

All types of campaigns, written articles detailing a plethoria of illnesses and diseases by the book…

What else is there to portray and highlight as we try convincing our smoke belching brothers…

Reduce smoking, refresh the environment and we all get to live together as brothers…
