UK Cigarette Prices and Taxes go through the roof


In a couple of days it will be 14 years since I gave up smoking. 

I thought it would be interesting to see the price of 20 cigarettes today. I was shocked to see the current cost.

If I had smoked like 5-10 a day over the last 14 years I would have spent around $14k. A pretty nice saving made.






Here is a breakdown of movement in prices:
