There are currently more than 4 stores selling tobacco in Australia!
Everyone knows that Australia’s cigarette packs are the scariest in the world!
And the price keeps rising
I remember when I came to Australia
A pack of cigarettes is only about $15
And it's basically caught up with the level of 30 dollars
Even if cigarette prices go up
Smokers still smoke!
Even if there are various smoking risks printed on the cigarette pack
But smokers don’t seem to catch a cold
But in fact, Australia’s recent price increase policy
Still restrict consumers to some extent
Cigarettes are really too expensive!
I'm not worried about the body
But can't afford...

Smoking is not only harmful to the body
And will cause huge economic losses

A year is more than 1 Australian dollars
And the health problems caused by smoking
Will cause smokers to pay more for medical expenses
Smoking can cause multiple causes
