Speedway Cigarette Prices
So I work at a store and I have noticed that people have stopped buying cigarrets as often as they used to because the prices have gone up. So if not a lot of people arent buying them then I guess it means that people are deciding to stop smoking as often
So, Do you think this is a way to stop or at least decrease the number of people smoking?

One of the reasons I quit smoking was because it was getting expensive. I used to buy the Speedway gas station brand Tourney and it was creeping up to $2 a pack. I bought my last pack ever three years ago in January and paid $1.89. Also, I figured that something was wrong if I always had money to scrape together for a pack of cigarettes, but I couldn't justify a cup of coffee with friends.
It does bug me when people say they don't have money for something important, like car repairs or heat, but they reek of smoke to the point that I can't stand to talkto them, as I can't breath and my eyes water. Unfortunately, there are people in my husband's family like that. His sister needed assistance to pay for her family's heat, but she reeks of smoke. (Her and her husband.) We lent her our pick up truck (we're blessed to have three vehicles for the two of us; I thought the truck was unnecessary, but, surprisingly, it's been quite useful) because she can't afford car repairs. My husband told her not to smoke in it, but when she was in it the other day and my husbnad saw her, a pack of smokes was in the cup holder and the truck he said was awfully strong of smoke. (He took our daughter out to see her and he brought her in quickly. He didn't want her to smell that.)
Anyway, I'm ranting and have gone off topic. I'm sorry.
My husband and I voted for Smoke Free Ohio, so we could go to a restaurant and breathe while we had our dinner. We lived in Michigan for a year so he could do his internship. There were three restaurants we patronized as they were smoke free and I could eat happily as well. (He's not vegetarian.) I will vote for it in other states as well. It's almost a pity that restaurants lost our business because we chose to breathe and, after I was blessed with my pregnancy, I did not want to unnecessarily harm our baby.
