Banning smoking forever

I got a drum kit off my dads Kensitas coupons, I vaguely remember there being a catalogue to choose from. 
 
smoked around 45 rollies a day, gave up 3 1/2 years ago. Arctic cherry vape is the way to go 
This brings back memories of Regal's focus points. About 50,000 fags to get a shite Bush HiFi

I never thought anybody ever saved up enough coupons to buy any of that stuff.

If you're a Simple Minds fan you can be thankful, if not maybe less so...

I'm so old I can remember when a pint of McEwen's Export was 23p and a pack of 20 Embassy tipped was 25p.
Thus three pints and a packet of fags with change for £1...

Me too, I can remember going into town on a Friday night with a fiver in my back bin. 10 Regal Filter, 6 or 7 bottles of Mackeson, a poke of chips and the bus fare home, with enough change for a paper and the sports pages on the Saturday morning. Happy Days.

This is now a possibility, not that I think it would work particularly well.

We should be looking at legalising and educating not banning stuff because it's "easy".

That will be interesting for the guys a year behind the curve. 

"10 Embassy Regal please" 

"Show me your ID" 

"Ah f**k" 

One year later:

"10 Embassy Regal please" 

"Show me your ID" 

ad infinitum

Don't worry, they'll go back to selling singles with 3 matches.

 Back in the 70’s, My local chippy used to sell singles for 3p. Only problem was, they were a brand called Corsair. They were the same length but only about half the thickness of a standard Regal.

They still do where I am - free shot of the lighter included.

It would be pretty funny to have 63 year olds able to buy cigarettes but 62 year olds prohibited, a few years down the line.

They'll just get some older boys to go in the shop for them.
