I think it's not a good idea. First there is a new policy in China. That is you can't smoke in public places. So smoker will not effect your life(effect of air population is tiny). Although they are using cigarettes kill themselves. But they still choose to smoke ,so maybe they can't control themselves. Many poor families also have smokers. If taxes growing, they might get a big trouble.Like Drugs are expensive and illegal, but there are still some people using them. My opinion is smoker's taxes growing can't solve the problem, Only smoker's friend or family can save them from the hand of cigarettes.

Actually I don' t think high taxes can make smokers have any change, it can' t decrease smokers. They can choose they want to smoke or not, if someone really wants to smoke, no one can stop it. I think most of smoker know about their body, they know they can smoke or not.

Smoking is a bad habit. It can cause a lot of diseases. Meanwhile smoking is a waste of money. Besides, careless smokers may cause dangerous fires. It is harmful and it is not only bad for smokers themselves, but also bad for non-smokers.
Therefore, I hope all the smokers can give up smoking for themselves and also for the people around them. Smoking is harmful and it is not only bad for smokers themselves, but also bad for non-smokers.

I absolutely agree with the conception of high taxes for smokers.
The point is that there is not only threat for themselves, but also for people who are near them, espessially for pregnant women and teenagers. Youngsters usually don't aware danger from smoking completely. I think they only want to copiright behaviour their frends and want to show their ability to be resemble to older people.
I suppose that supplimentary taxes could be used for agitation and explanation the smoking hurm.
I agree what you said. I think let smokers pay high taxes for cigarettes is good for the smokers themselves,too. Some smokers may realised that smocking is bad for their health, but they still can't stop doing so. So, I think let smokers pay high taxes is a good action for both smokers themselves and the people around them.

I agree with the proposal of smokers should pay more taxes. Because smoking is harmful to everyone, not just the smoker. When people breathe in the smoke, they will be unhealthier. So smokers should pay more taxes on cigarettes.

I believe that smokers should pay high taxes for cigarettes. Because there are many smoker in China. For me, my aunt always smoke in the house, so make me always can smell of cigarettes in the room. Smoke is bad for people, smell much can make people died. So, I believe that smokers should pay high taxes for cigarettes.

By increase the tax on cigarette, I think that is a good way to limit people smoke.
Everyone knows smoke is bad for health, but most of them cannot control themselves, so they also bad for the people who stand around him. So increase the tax this a good approach to solute this problem, and decrease the number of smokers.

In my opinion, raise the text is a good way to reduce the number of people to buy cigarette. The cigarette not only bad for health, it also influences the air quality. :twisted: Cigarette is one of the reason that cause the air pollution.(people smokes) If government do that, not only can reduce the people get disease on cigarette, it also reduces the air pollution. {-;
