Smoking cigarettes isn’t a healthy thing to do and its a pricey exercise. One that i partake in. They say it always seems to be the poor that smoke. Im poor, so yes this applies to me. I can’t seem to get a job at the young age of 49, regardless of skills, experience and work ethic (and a good resume/reference). Im a single Mum of a 13yr old on Centrelink who’s Centrelink money doesn’t cover bills and food. I own my home outright too, thanks to my parents money they left me and i, on my own...cannot afford the bills coming in. Now i have to pay $30 in some places to buy 20 cigarettes. Petrol stations i’m looking at you!!!. In the UK 10 cigarettes are available to buy. Why not here in Australia?! It will help to cut people down on their cigarette intake. A smoker can drop to ten a day. The psychological effect of having a ten pack to keep to is an immense help in giving up smoking. The price difference would be a godsend to people in my position. Please help me get this change made...even if your a non smoker you can see the benefit to smokers, and those smokers trying to quit. The government allows us to kill ourselves by selling them. Reaps the tax rewards. But whats in it for us as their victims. Can at least give us 10 packs help our pockets and health. Thanks
