    I had my first two donuts in about 5 weeks this morning at 0330. Walked over to a Circle K to get coffee cause at 0330 I get edgy and groggy when waiting on a receiver, and that one wasn't coming in until 0400.

    So, I get my coffee and two glazed donuts, and ask the clerk how much is a pack of Marlboros now a days anyway?

    He scans a pack.
    BEEP
    $8.78

    JUST F WOW

    He says " That's cheap. I'm from Chicago. They $17 a pack up there."

    JUST F WOW

    Those of you that are still smoking have my sympathy.

    I'm coming up on my 12th year of being quit of them.

    When I was in The Navy, Marlboros were $5 carton. I gave them up, purely for health, when they were in $40's for a carton.

    $17 a pack!!!!

    JUST F WOW

    Of course, that won't cause people to smuggle cigarettes from lower tax states.

    You need to try the maple bacon bar at
    Alvernon Donut Shop in Tucson if you ever get through there.

    Same here. Be 52 soon. Good for you man. Congrats.
    Did the same thing. Took a good 5 years for the cravings to go away.
