The government has steadily been increasing the tax on tobaco in europe over many years.
Because of this high tax on tobaco many have stopped smoking or switched to alternative means.
What i'm saying is that european governments are killing their own tax revenue from tobaco. Doesn't make any sense from a financial point of view.


catmonster , You wrong ... govt is not killing tax revenue but increasing

read about tobaco income and profit

Take British American Tobacco (BAT), one of the world’s largest tobacco companies. In 2006, it sold 691 billion cigarettes and had a market valuation of £29.6 billion. In 2014, it sold only 667 billion cigarettes but notched up a year-end valuation of £65.2 billion.

Similarly, Imperial Tobacco has boosted its profitability significantly over the past two decades. Its UK operating margin rose from 49% in 1996 to 68% last year. Remember though, that past performance is not an indicator of what could happen in the future.

One reason for this resilience is that it is easy for tobacco companies to raise prices. Tax accounts for most of the price of a typical premium-brand cigarette packet – in the UK, the figure is almost 80% – so consumers are unlikely to notice if the manufacturer adds a few pence to the overall cost. This incremental price-hiking has helped tobacco companies to make up for falling sales volumes.

Another is consolidation: many tobacco companies have been able to pool resources and cut costs by merging in recent years. The latest big deal was last summer’s US$27 billion (£17 billion) acquisition of Lorillard, America’s third-biggest player, by R.J. Reynolds, the second-biggest.

Widespread bans on tobacco advertising have also had the perverse effect of helping tobacco companies to boost their margins – because they no longer have to spend so much on marketing.

Shouldn't booze bottles also have pictures on them showing for example damaged livers similar like cigarette packages showing damaged lungs ?


Why ? Govt see more money in future selling drugs and more people will die from drugs , in short more money for govt

smokers are dying slowly , huge cost for govt
dying from strong drugs is fast , huge saving for govt

I honestly think humans gets so hung up on living forever because we feel like we don’t have enough time. We think that one lifetime just isn’t enough. We cling to the idea of eternity because it feels secure. I’ve had that same feeling multiple times during this finite life though. Have you ever felt the embrace of a loved one who kindly whispered to you, “You’re safe now” or “You don’t have to be afraid ever again”? In that moment you didn’t need reassurance that trillions of years would pass without a moment of discomfort. We can experience the miracle of that moment in the temporal way it was meant to be felt, eternity or not. I think many of us equate Heaven with such a feeling, like a hug that’s waiting for us on the other side to say that everything will be okay, the pain is over, you’re safe now. Who wouldn’t want that?

I don’t ridicule the idea of Heaven in general, or think those who seek it are merely small people looking for a way to cope with the fear of death. I do, however, believe that Heaven isn’t cheap. It goes much further than the superficial themes of pleasure and reward. Heaven is when you carry your kid on your shoulders after a sports game on the way back to your car. Heaven is when you walk across the stage to take your diploma from the president of the university. Heaven is emerging from poverty, or lowering ladders for others to climb out. It is a baby’s laughter, a negative cancer screening, or marriage vows renewed.

No, I do not believe what we seek is life eternal. We simply want to leave here on our terms, when we are good and ready. Are you ready to die? It’s okay if you’re not. Just stop waiting for Heaven.

Folks , folks, you all have a nice dream bit reality is ....we have use by date and NOTHING can change that now , in past or future

let see Life Expectancy for last 5000 years

5000 years ago ................28
2000 years ago ................35
100 years ago ................55
Now around 80


If you understand how it is calculated you will find that Life Expectancy is in reality same

humans can live up to 120 years now or 4000 years ago

it is just that before more people died in wars and from sickness , but some , lucky one, lived until 120 , same as today, only today LESS people die younger
in short we are not Gods as we think today
nothing changes , nothing will in future
Accept dead and .......nothing

We are No1 for astma in Australia and you know that plus as you know we have 28 towns here with shit forbiden to drink water . you know all that if not look at official govt site for the truth


read this

Tasmania's Premier Will Hodgman is demanding answers as the national spotlight falls on more than two dozen Tasmanian towns where locals are unable to drink from the water supply.
GIF: Map of Tasmanian towns with unusable water

In 26 towns across the state the water is unsafe to drink and either needs to be boiled or cannot be consumed at all.

A study has found lead levels in water pipes exceeded national guidelines by up to 22 times.

Mr Hodgman said the long standing problem has left a bitter taste in the mouths of thousands of Tasmanians.

"Absolutely not good enough and it's a concern to the Tasmanian community and it's a concern to Government," he said.

But Mr Hodgman did not commit any money to help speed up pipe upgrades, or install more rain water tanks.

"The responsible owners are of course, local government, so we need to work with them as well, but as a State Government we cannot accept the current situation," he said.


Real clean air , from U.N.
In 2012, the World Health Organization issued a global air quality ranking and Estonia, Mauritius and Canada rank the top three. According to statistics, these countries are benefited from their low population density, superior climate conditions and strict control measures on air pollution.

Top 1 Estonia

Estonia lies on the eastern shores of the Baltic Sea. Its capital is Tallinn. According to the global air quality ranking issued by the WHO, Estonia enjoys the cleanest air in the world. Estonia, with 47 percent of its territory covered by forests, has numerous fantastic gulfs, straits, islands, lakes and marshes.

Because of its outstanding air quality, Estonia attracts many health-minded tourists from all over the world.

Top 2 Mauritius

Mauritius is an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 kilometers off the south east coast of the African continent. Mauritius is surrounded by coral reefs. Mauritius possesses many different landforms. Narrow plains stretch along the coast. In the middle there are plateau mountains, sierras and isolated peaks.

Top 3 Canada

Canada is a North American country consisting of 10 provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean.
















The World Air Quality Index publishes data measuring pollution in units called PM10 and PM2.5, which track particles in the atmosphere.

At one point in the past 48 hours, the figures showed air quality at New Norfolk near Hobart reached the same level as industrial areas of India and China.

Hobart's PM2.5 was higher than New York, London and Paris.

Launceston's measure was slightly lower than the southern part of the state, but still higher than Melbourne.
