My thoughts exactly, if the government are honestly concerned for our wellbeing and want us to quit they should redirect part of the huge tax haul they make from smokers towards subsidising the gum and the patches.

Personally I think the government is primarily concerned with the increasing cost of smoking as far as the health budget goes not our wellbeing and their solution is to "tax the #/&* out of the suckers, that'll fix it". :roll:

The worst of it is that these guys spend three years coming up with solutions like this and then get a huge pension for the rest of their lives. Take 10% off the top of all the politicians pensions and we could all have FREE gum & patches. :twisted:
