I don't buy online, I like the personal touch of a 43 year-old divorced mother of two working at 3am.

People buy cigarettes online? Everyone I know goes to The7-ElevenDownTheStreet.com.

Are you being serious, or am I about to feel like a dumbass?

Personally, I just buy around the corner. They sell at state minimum price, which isn't bad in Indiana.

I buy my cigarettes at the local estanco. It is a bit cheaper than at the automatic dispensers.

I drive down the road to the Indian reservation and buy a carton once a week.

France/Italy border, Italy side.

Heck, they have Yves-St-Laurent cigarettes in there.

Honestly, I smoked ONE pack in my life and I bought them there at the vintimiglia train station. 3.50 euros for blue Camels.

Cigarettes suck.

Is that true? If you work for them, do you get a free pack every day? (I'm not sure if that is cool or evil. )

I used to work for an agency that did the advertising for Davidoff. We got all the free cigarettes we could smoke and then some.

It's true in North Carolina if you work at Philip Morris. Also, they hand out free cigarettes when you tour the factory.

Everyone has a high chance of dying.

Darn near a 100% chance, last I checked.

The FBI and Customs confiscated my cigarettes last time I ordered online (6 months ago). It's much harder to order cigs online now and they're starting to crack down.

I cheat my state as often as I can, they will get little cigarette taxes from, I don't like cig nazis.

I buy in PA, though I live in NJ (they are raising the tax, yet again). Buying in NJ is at least a dollar per pack more, and forget about it if you go to NY, you're looking at about 7-9 dollars per pack. There's a little convenience shop at the gas station across from where I work in PA. They ALWAYS have the 3-for-2 packs there, so you get three packs for about $4 each.

Yep. I always buy a few packs before I visit people in NY for a weekend or whatever. Buying them in the city kills me. I'd rather spend the money at a bar.

As a non-smoker it's easy to chastise your expensive habit. Then I remembered how the blood drained from my face when I did a report in CheckBook and realized how much I spent at Starbucks.
