    OK I agree with Slinga but it's your choice.

    This is the official price list per packet.

    I assume you didn't join the thread to help answer the question.

    I don't smoke neither do any of my immediate family. I detest it.

    However my nephew does smoke and as this holiday is a last minute thing and he does not have a lot of spending money. He told me he was going to ask his dad to lend him some money so he could bring some cigarettes back and that's what gave me the idea of giving him money for them as his birthday present.

    I don't go to Barcelona anymore because you aren't allowed to smoke in the bars now. Don't go out much in Blighty either, and if they ban it in Vegas I will defo stop doing there.

    There, flame away, but if you do hang on while I light a ciggy with it.
    The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.

    Am I correct in thinking you can only buy tobacco products from state owned outlets in Spain - tabacs ?

    Although I understand you can buy them from under the counter in supermarkets etc.

    You canít buy cigarettes in supermarkets, only in the tabacs. Some bars have cigarette machines as well.

    Why not just give him some holiday money without specifying what it's for, thereby not appearing to condone tobacco use. The cost to vital energy and general health is the same wherever purchased.

    I know its each to their own but to encourage youngsters who you care for is quite shocking to me, to the extent it tempts me to poke my nose in where it isn't wanted

    Sorry, but it does. Please rethink.

    I think smoking in bars and restaurants is not allowed in the whole of Spain, not just Barcelona. The law came in a few months before ours.


    Most civilised countries now have similar limits on smoking - who knows even Nevada might be civilised one day!

    My targets to end 2018:
    1) To get down to 11 st 7lbs then treat to a safari. At start 17 stone 7 lbs: *61lbs lost* *30lbs to go*
    1st started SW16st13lbs tues11/7/17 - 38 weeks -53lbs
    2nd sw 14 st 12lbs Fri15/6/18 -> 0 weeks -0lbs
    2) to find new challenges

    A teacher friend does an exercise with classes on the cost of smoking - the kids are astonished when they realise how much they could save per year, on average enough to pay for a holiday abroad.

    I smoke myself occasionally, socially, but hated it when my kids were small and you went on holiday and people were smoking.
    Everyone should have the right to make the decision, but no-one should be able to inflict their smoke onto other people, especially children
