Seems to me there were some threads a while back about the reports of individual companies. Across the board it said that sales were way down by quantity, but the companies had just jacked up their price per unit and the profits rolled in just fine.
There is something to be said for the effectiveness of the business model: Addict children, and take them for all they're worth for the rest of their lives!

Let's face it, Big tobacco will always be Big tobacco as long as there are people who continue to resist all evidence to the dangers of smoking and as long as they continue to breed, which brings more future customers to the tobacco companies. After all, their kids, due to the second hand smoke are probably addicts before their 5 years old.
