10 No 10...9 1/2p a book of matches...1/2p smokes for all day for 10p!

If you had the extra penny, 10 No 6... 10 1/2p!

Haven't had a fag for over 25 years. I still miss them sometimes!

It must be all of 25 minutes since I had one Image and all of ten years since I bought any here: I go channel-hopping (one advantage of being darn sarf) to get 'em cheaper three times a a year.
I remember those prices, though: you've gone and decimalised them, haven't you! Image
Sworn, b'loody!

You could also get 10 "Extra" for 9 1/2p and a book of matches 1/2p

Smoked from age 10 to 30 and then stopped 17 years 11 months and 14 days ago... never think about it though. :?


On a serious note - I would rather chew my leg off than ever, ever smoke a fag again :twisted:

Oh yes! :D

Dave, you're a better man than I for giving up and staying off them.

On the other hand, I suffered terrible hay fever as a kid, and the few times I managed to stay off the weed for a while it came back.

It was when I went to live in Guatemala (where Raleigh is said to have discovered tobacco) that I found out the local Mayans used it as a remedy for allergies. One envisages Raleigh going ashore, getting a sneezing fit and being offered a pipe to soothe his snotty nose...without all the nasty additives that fags have mixed with their tobacco these days. (But then Raleigh didn't need to worry about cancer anyway: he was beheaded before it might have become a problem.)
