Why are cigarettes still being sold?

Many health risks associated with smoking.

Following on from smoking looking cool thread...

The USA in the 1920s demonstrated what happens when you try and prohibit a popular recreational drug. Alcohol use did decrease but it was nowhere near eliminated, organised crime flourished, and the government lost out on the taxes it had imposed when alcohol was legal.

I’m not sure why I started this thread confused

I’ve cracked the smoking but I’m so pissed odd about some of the food I like being filled with sweetners. I’ve opened up old wounds for me. Is sugar as bad as cigarettes??? I feel aggrieved that the sprite of my needing sugar and boost days is long gone, microwave popcorn is shit now and orange squash just doesn’t taste like it used to...

Also sorry for all my typos. I dint really comment much on here, only when I’ve had a wine and OH fallen asleep...
