    First, I agree with this issue because the purpose of levying a tax on cigarettes was to protect the health of smokers and the people around them.

    Second, I was the one who was one of the people around smokers. While I lived with my family, I really hated it since it was smoky and I didn't like the smell.
    I have also thought like this, that cigarettes should disappear or smokers should be fined when I learned about "Secondhand smoke" at school. I felt it was a kind of small crimes exaggeratedly when I knew the possibility of damage to second smoker was higher than to smokers and I was surprised.

    Third, I sometimes drink alcohol or use for cooking so I probably didn't agree at first, but now there are many alcohol which are improved and sell at a reasonable price. That was good for our health in the long run.

    Lastly, the more wisely and fairly the government and politicians reconsider the use of taxes, the more willingly I can agree to tax hike.

    I do agree. I agree far more readily for taxing cigarettes as I don't smoke so I would be unaffected by an increase although hopefully still benefit from improved government services.

    As for alcohol, which I am more fond of, I can understand the necessity for increased taxation. Like cigarettes, alcohol is a form of poison which we willingly partake in, and which affects others than just ourselves. Often those who drink too much can become a nuisance, particularly to those who don't drink.

    Also as smokers and drinkers we are more likely to need medical attention in the long-term and that will need to be paid for through additional taxes.
