Smokers: You Are About To Have A Massive Hole Put In Your Po

It's the most wonderful day of the year.. for politicians who love to fight each other.

For everyone else, we find out that we are probably going to be either richer or poorer for the year.

Smokers are about to penalised further for their habit as it has been announced by Matthias Cormann that the budget plans to increase the cost of a pack of cigarettes to $40 by 2020.

For somebody who smoke a packet a day that means they will be spending $14,600 a year on cigarettes alone.

It isn't likely to get any better for smokers and the Government can opt to increase this further year on year.

If you would like to quit smoking you can call QuitLine on 13 7848.
