Over $30 Worth


based at this rate...including tax

Trust me, getting that first shot was all I could do to stand directly over the rising reeking stench.

  1. Good grief! You are one dedicated photographer! I don't think I could have stood it...amazing what people waste their money on, isn't it? I was in the store the other day and someone who looked like they barely had enough to eat purchased 2 packs of smokes...Just under $11!!!!!

  3. Some of those look as if they are only half smoked as well, they obviously don't mind burning money !

  4. The issue isn't really money, though smoking is expensive. The issue is what they are doing to their bodies and the bodies of those who stand near them. It is an addiction, but it is easier to quit than it is to live with the devastating diseases caused by smoking. Nice photography and Good message ...

  6. I am a non smoker John and it's a habit I can't abide...I hate the smell and I don't think I could have even taken your image.. the price of cigatettes went up by 37p (59c) yesterday in our budget... to help pay our National Health Service... and all the cancer sufferers... Dad was a smoker and died of cancer in 1971 aged 44... I was 15 and really never got to know him..

  10. They're not quite that high here in southeast Missouri, but about $4.25 or $4.35 a pack, so THANK GOD I quit 1 year & 5 months ago... I've saved sooo much money just in that length of time, it's amazing!!! =) And you're not lying about the stench, because I can smell it on smokers as soon as they open the door here at work & it literally makes me gag... I'm so glad I quit! I don't even want one, & it makes me physically sick & makes my head hurt immediately even thinking about smoking one... now, my head hurts! YuCk! =(
