I am sick of everyone looking out for my welfare. I smoke Marlboro and have for far to many years. Our State, Indiana, has now gone to the new FSC cigarettes. These, by far, are the nastiest cigarettes I have ever smoked. I was advised that the reason behind this new saftey issue is due to the fact that some people have had fires due to cigarette smoking before the new saftey standards were implemented. I know cigarette smoking is suppose to be bad for you, but hey, I am an adult and that is a choice I wish to make. If my house burns up in a fire due to cigarette smoking that is my fault, not the cigarettes. (Example: Guns don't kill people; people kill people)Why should everyone else who smokes be punished for my stupidity. Everyone talks about how many chemicals we put into our bodies by smoking, well with these new FSC cigarettes, I am sure they contain even more chemicals that are even more harmful.
Again, I am an adult. If I wish to smoke not so safe cigarettes, shouldn't that be my choice? What happen to personal choice? When was that right taken away from me? If I am going to pay $5.?? odd dollars a day to slowly kill myself, why can I not have the choice on which cigarette I wish to do it with? Hell, cigarette smoking is dangerous anyways, why try to make it safer now by preventing a fire? To end this, I am not a sloppy smoker. I have never burned anything in my life with my cigarette. Yes NEVER!! The first FSC cigarette that I smoked, the little part right after the first stop point of the cigarette fell off onto my shirt and burned a hole in it. Remind me, how is this safer? Signed, Totally disgusted with Marlboro for caving in to whoever and not giving me a choice. I am now switching brands. Sorry Marlboro, YOU gave me NO choice.
