    Cigarettes here in MA are over $10 a pack. You can sometimes find generics at $9.50.

    I was on a business trip a couple years ago in a city that had seen some hard times. Everywhere I went, it was multiple "Hey, can I bum a smoke" followed by "Hey, you got any money?" (often in a less-friendly tone). I stopped smoking while outside and the problem went away.

    Totally sucked, though. Non-smoking hotel, couldn't smoke at the customers' or in the rental car either.

    Thank God for vaping!!!!!

    I actually had my first experience with this the other day. Had a homeless guy come up and ask me for a smoke, I simply told him that I had recently quit. He looked confused at first until he saw the vape, then he just grinned and went "Good job, man. Wish I had one of those." and walked off. I was glad he wasn't angry about it.

Thinking of that, what is the cost for a pack of smokes where your from? I live in AZ its about $5.75 a pack here, most places offer a buy 2 for a discounted price and that comes up to about $9.87

    5/22/08 Prics went up about 50cents, gotta love taxes
    Wow those are cheap! Smokes here in bc canada are 8 bucks each for cheap ones and like 80 for a carton lol

    It was frustrating enough for perfect strangers to walk up to me on break and plee for a smoke. Now I get perfect strangers asking to puff off my MVP 2 and wonder why I say no.
    Why do people think it's kosher to stick them mouth on my MVP it's gross

    Ha... I was thinking about this recently too. I used to walk 2 blocks every morning from the train to my office, and in that space I would get asked no less than 4 or 5 times for a smoke.

    But even worse are people in my social circles who are "social" smokers... and they knew I always had tobacco. It was hard for me to say no, so I generally shared and some people definitely took advantage of it.

    I'm not petty or mean or selfish but the truth is if I gave away smokes to everyone who asked, my bank account would look like the national debt. What a relief that I won't be asked to furnish cigarettes for other people anymore.

    I was always happy to share, but I smoked cloves. 75 percent of the time, they didn't want one. The other 25 percent of the time, I met a stealth Goth or clove enthusiast. So that was okay.

    I notice this thread has been resurrected. I wonder what the price of that same pack of cigs in AZ back in 2008 is now?
    Here in VA, in '08, I think they were $3.95, now they're $5.11 last time I checked, and that's from the cheapest place in town! Thank God for vaping!
