le prix des cigarettes augmentent souvent en France et je suis d'accord (├ętant non fumeur).

cigarette prices often increase in France and I agree (to be non-smoking).

Jim said...

I remember when they were going up to $2 a pack and thinking how much money I was spending. I think I quit when they were around $3. Scary a carton is $40.

Whoa! Makes me very happy that that's not my vice. ;-)

I thought the lager was spelt Skoll in the UK but I'm not a drinker so don't take much notice. Advertising for cigarettes is now virtually non-existant in the UK.

Tanya said...

I'm happy I'm not a smoker! I can think of better ways to spend my money!

Jilly said...

Ah, the first cigarettes today. Good choice by way of showing prices.

Expensive habits!

Sally said...

Can't remember the last time I saw a cigarette ad!

is that $4.32 for a pack of 20. They're more like $11 or $12 in Australia.

Wow, it seems like everything in Australia is more expensive than in the US (see Sally's comment here and elsewhere about gas prices).

I quit smoking a long time ago and it was the best thing I ever did.

babooshka said...

Those ciggies look cheaper than the prices in the uk, after I convert the price. I quit before the prices went sky high. A goos choice, first cigs. i've seen

Lady Demeter said...

I'm happy I don't smoke because it's here very expensive, too (when I converted it correctly it's more than 6$ here in Germany)

Happy theme day!

turtle said...

I always suspected I was a bit thick, now I'm certain - I thought these were petrol prices!!
I was even thinking to myself - oh, Marlboro do a petrol in the US.

Told ya - thick as two short planks.

brian said...

Small City Scenes said...

Glad I'm not a user. what a waste. MB

Neva said...

The price on these would convince me to quit....waaayyyy too expensive.

travelphilippines said...

wow 4.32 for a marlboro i wish my smoker friends lived there so it will be hard for them to buy their smoke.

Greg said...

Big numbers to end up going up in smoke. Good choice for the DP theme day
