Cigarettes???

I smoke iscore 5.0 at 60 baht a packet. I recently went to a 7/11 and ordered 4 packets but only was allowed 2 packets. This has happened me twice in 2 different 7-11s. I asked the staff if I walk outside and come in again can I get the other packets because I was buying the extra ones for a homeless man. She said come back in, in 10 minutes. So in hindsight the homeless man didn’t get his nicotine and I am none the wiser on this new law.

The answer is here;

New tax to raise cigarette prices by around 8 baht per pack | Thaiger (thethaiger.com)

Nation Thailand reports that all cigarettes in stock will be subject to the new tax on Friday and the Excise Department will check stocks at tobacco factories and import warehouses to “combat hoarding that seeks to exploits the old tax.”

Unfortunately they did hoard, leaving retailers low on stock so they limited sales to 2 packs per day.
Normal service should now have resumed as retailers restock - but at the new price.

Cheap cigs, a pack of 20 in Australia will set you back 600+ baht.

Of course have you considered that it may be an opportunity for you to stop smoking , is it a signal from above perhaps ? 😂

I said it as  a joke really but is there really a shortage ?  1 hour or so ago I was in my little cheapo store buying the party booze ( its rice cutting here so they will have finished today so its worth a party for all and sundry who helped), and there were several large boxes of fags. Don't ask me what type as I don't smoke but a couple of people who came in whilst I was there bought about 4/6 packets each.

Been suggested that Emphysema and Covid have a lot in common. 

You can end up sucking on a oxygen bottle for your final days.

Do your lungs a big favour and give it up.

But if you die before your time,  you may never get the opportunity to cure cancer, write a world beating novel, fly into space, meet Angelina Jolie and  both of you fall madly in love, or win millions on the lottery.... you could miss so much.  I'm still hoping one or more of those things will happen .

See? A quick extra beer and a stagger into traffic and WHAMMO!

Who said smoking was dangerous?
