Maybe stop making cigarettes with filters that can't decompose?

Then the filters won’t filter

This might sound incredibly unsympathetic by me but…..idgaf. If you wanna kill your self with cigarettes then so be it. But the world is not your ashtray and nobody else should suffer for your bad habits (like cleaning your trash and 2nd hand smoke). Shit is disgusting and obnoxious.

The sad thing about smoking is that it cost the health systems a lot of money to care for patients later in life.

Your tax money already pays for that. You're already impacted by smoking.

It obviously differs from country to country but the ones I know of make far more in tax revenue from cigarette sales than treating smokers costs them.

There is also a clear example of BS reporting since on the one hand we are told that smokers cost the health care system X amount, and on the other hand we are told that we will all die early.

Given everyone will die at some point and almost everyone at this point is costing the health system, and given that the older you get the more you cost, how exactly does it cost more if we all die early?

Yeah, I seem to recall a study that showed smokers actually cost less because, as you said, they tend to die before ending up in a nursing home and lung cancer tends to kill pretty quickly.

Ding Ding Ding. You are so wrong.

Even when I was smoking, I would never toss the butts on the ground. I'd also gave my mates shit that did it until they stopped too. I cannot understand the mentality of these grubs that just toss the butts out the window and don't care.

I'm glad the price of ciggies has gone up, I'd love to see them completely banned in the future.

It’s not the Plastic that filters anyways. It’s just in there to make the cigarettes keep their shape
