If you are looking for best generic cigarette brands like Marlboro Lights, Reds, or Newports, we will be glad to help you.
The prices of cigarettes are rising all over the world. No, the company that produces your favorite cigarette brand isn’t keen on squeezing more money out of you by using your addiction (at least nothing more than usual). The reason why the cigarettes are more expensive now than ever lies in the fact that the governments are raising the taxes, forcing the rise in prices, in hope that this will make people smoke less. Either this worked or maybe people have started taking their health more seriously now with all the healthy lifestyle trend, seeing that the consumption of tobacco has seen a steady decrease in the recent years. According to Washington Post, 50 years ago, two out of five adults in the United States were smokers. In 2005, that number was almost cut in half, when 20.9 percent of adults consumed cigarettes. Statistics from 2014 are even more promising, showing that only 16.8 percent of adults smoked cigarettes. The estimations are that in 2020 there will be less than 12 percent of adult smokers.
I smoke cigarettes for around 8 to 10 years now, and I am aware of both financial and health costs, but somehow I lack the will to quit. If you also lack a strong will, but you are tired of giving out money for big name brand cigarettes like Marlboro Reds, generic brands are always a good choice. Generic brands are usually not promoted heavily, which allows them to be more affordable. Since generic brands aim to be a substitute for better-known brands, the quality is often satisfying.
