where are my cigarettes?

Cigarettes are now being removed from display in all shops/stores. Cigarette smoking is banned in hotels /public places, and now the lunatics are banning cigarette vending machines, yet........and fool of any age can go into a pubic loo and buy a packet of condoms.
Oh dear Lord what is this country becomming?

I don't see a problem with it, thisoldman. Cigarettes are bad for you and cause displeasure to others; condoms on the other hand are, well, roughly the opposite.

Be3G  my popint was kids /teenagers can easily buy condoms, thereby encouraging promiscuity.
Do you really think banning vending machines /hiding cigarettes will reduce smoking.

I would be surprised if condoms actually encourage promiscuity though. I would have thought that they contribute very little to it, whilst at the same time they make things safer for all concerned.
As for making cigarettes harder to source, I agree that it might not make much of a difference – but in my opinion it doesn't harm to try.
