I’m afraid this will not work , most of the cigerrates are smuggled now , which are not taxed . Cigarettes will start flowing in from Iran Afghanistan and god knows where .

In UK tax in increased every year on tobacco and alcohol.Cigaretts are not food or medicine so there is no need to buy them.It has been proven medically that cigaretts cause lung cancer and other ailments.
