Ahem...

But there would be a lessening of smoking related health issues as well which costs the NHS a small fortune every year?

Brought this up myself on another forum and was promptly shot down in flames.
I was advised that the revenue taken from tobacco sales was around twice as much as the cost of treating smoke related illnesses.
That was in the UK I believe.
Dont know if it is accurate,.....never got round to checking it out.

All above is true.
Look into the related cost due to alcohol - WAY MORE I think..

If you look at the stats that the Pro-smokers offer up then yeah thats correct, but it doesn't take into account all the other factors involved, only the DIRECT costs to the NHS incurred by smoking. Yet more cleverly engineered statistics.

I don't really know (or care) about the costs, one way or the other we all pay.
