Aside from this, a lot of research has been done to help smokers quit from smoking. Most rich countries increase the retail price of cigs. Other’s put in the label, “Surgeons’ warning: smoking cigarettes will kill you.” And there are also horrible images on every cig’s box that show the side-effects. And now we have electronic ones which have no nicotine.
