If everyone stopped smoking today then an extra £10 billion would have to be found each year to replace the tax revenue, if not more.
There would be no savings on the NHS for a number of years due to people already been smoking.
So where would you find the extra £10 billion from, more cuts or putting up tax on things like booze and fuel?

You sound like you really want to stop and that you are frustrated that you can't. You also say you have tried to stop but everything has failed so far.
I hope I can offer you one last way out by purchasing a book by Allen Carr called, "The Easyway to Stop Smoking"
If you're in the frame of mind of wanting to stop then this book will work for you - read it through, carry on smoking whilst you read it and by the end you will be ready to stop - I tried the whole patches thing but really, it's not the addiction to nicotine that is the problem (your body overcomes the addiction in ~3 weeks), it's the brainwashing of cigarettes in society still - that's the hard part and Allen makes it really easy.
FYI, Allen smoked 60 cigarettes a day and went from that to 0 in one day. He never smoked again.

I have tried to quit countless times, I have tried everything sometimes twice, before you say just quit smoking, it's not as simple as that, I hate smoking I really do, they could put them up £10 a packet and I would still have to smoke. I am kept sane by having my 20 a day, believe me I would cost the NHS & other services FAR more if I didn't have my fags.

Don't you just love it when a new poster's very first post is to recommend something to us? In this case his (sorry, Allen Carr's) book. Yep, must rush out and buy it!
