Lets make cigarette smoking more expensive

If this is true, this is what I want to see more of. I want to see cigarettes so expensive that nobody wants to buy them. The NHS budget is grossly inflated by smoking-related diseases. Most importantly it will stop children from taking up the habit. I congratulate the UK government for following the lead of the New Zealand government by raising the legal age you can by cigarettes by one year every year so a time comes when nobody buys them.

What do you think?
