  1. First of all- I don’t smoke. To each his own I say.
    I am trying to help someone find a place to buy cigarettes relatively inexpensive. I was asked (repeatdly) to look into this for them so I told them I would check the internet with my favorite website; City Data.

    This thread is not to start any smoking debates, so please reply only if you have a thrifty way to purchase cigarettes.

    Long story short, these are for a few Senior Citizens on a fixed income. There is no chance in hell that they will quit smoking. I can’t force them and I don’t want to make them miserable in their last years of life. Over the age of 70 and stubborn as a mules, after many arguments, I say give them what they want & let them be happy. Also, I am not looking to make any profit. I don’t need to.

    If you are a smoker (NJ) , where do you get your carton of cigarettes?

    Feel free to PM me if you have info.
