If you drink, that can cause long term health problems and anti social behaviour, that at times, in some younger, that can also lead to hospitalization.

I rarely smoke but drink most late evenings.

There is no way that i have a leg to stand on when i try to lecture my partner not to smoke.

Just need to book short trips to Gibraltar every now and then to stock up on tobacco to be able to afford it.

Main Street (Gibraltar)..(restricted at the airport)..All tax free but put them in your suitcase and in the hold.

Personal use...provided you don't have multiple suitcases, will be fine if you ever got stopped :laughing:

England? That’s an insult to British forces and their allies.
Commonwealth and yank troops plus the free French Polish Czech etc played their part and smoked too

The people selling you the cures contribute to the pressure to quit, it's best to let people tread their own path really.

I've quit several times over the years and it was the 'fuck you' part of me that kept on keeping me smoking, like it or not there are parallels with the brexit mindset; I will give up if I ever want to, don't tell me what to do.

One day you realise that it's a stupid position to take, it can take a while.
