On the small business matter of plain packaging cigarettes, We have asked smokers purchasing tobacco pruducts, would plain packaging stop them smoking or make them think of giving up, not one customer said they were going give up or thinking of it.
Our problem is plain packaging cigarettes will upset and loose other customers waiting while we look for different tobacco products by name only.
This is not a small issue and does and will happen in this line of business as people are generally in a hurry. This is why they shop with us.
Smokers will have to be told to check what they purchase before they leave the shop. Otherwise we will need to refund incorrect supply, adding more running costs. (these are not the only extra costs that would be involved).
Your consideration on these matters would be very much appreciated.
Please give this some thought.
Trying to make people give up smoking by indirectly stopping them buying to essentials like milk, Bread, vegitables and other necessaries, even ice-cream, lollies for their children and themselves, is not healthy in any way.
When humans want something and it is legal. They will budget for it even if it means going without other necessities.
Is the health department checking and controlling what the content of nicotine is in tobacco products? Is it the same as before or has it increased since removing the contents of the packets? If you could please reply to this question
Put the content of nicotine back on the product. (Nicotine is addictive)
Taking the nicotine and tar content off packets the has, maybe caused people to increase their habit, due to them dosing themselves with more nicotine then they think they are.
Whereas when the content was on the product, they could monitor what their intake was and decrease their habit to the point where they throw the habit. (It is an addiction and state of mind)
I did this back in 1999 after more then 30years of smoking. It is so easy to give up when there is no pressure and you want to. I haven't smoked, with no thoughts of ever taking it up again for 11 plus years now.
Few smokers are inconsiderate, otherwise you would not only be loosing votes there would be more protests
