I don't think it is the government efforts, other than taxation. When I was young and smoked in the early 80ís, cigs were $1.25 a pack and the min wage was $3.35/hr so working 20 min got me a pack of butts. Today, if a teen can find a job (25% unemployment) they get $7.50/hr and $5.55 a pack or 45 minutes for the same cancer sticks. And, you get to smell like crap as well.

Remember, cigarettes dont kill, people smoking them does.
