F-in governments bleeding their people dry of money, ruining their health...it constitutes abuse of it's people in my mind. I never got hooked. I always hated the smell of it, never thought it looked cool, hated dating girls who smoked...there's nothing good about it. Eww.
Don't give your money to major corporations is a very real thing you can do to fight back.
Yeah, the Australian government has odd ideas about tax rates on certain items. We pay $15 for a pack of 25 smokes generally, and a six pack of beer costs between $15-20 outside of a slab. We do however have the best cheap wine in the world, you wont find a $5 bottle of wine outside Australia with the same quality.
