Smokers resorting to re-lighting cigarettes to save money
Many smokers have been resorting to relighting their used cigarettes to save money ever since the cost of cigarettes became so high. What they mean is that people are taking cigarette butts that they already smoked and relighting the butts and smoking them. Quite a desperate measure, but also a sign of how steep tobacco prices affects your average smoker.
As many as half of smokers in the study that was done had re-lit cigarettes. People who were more likely to re-light cigarettes were those with the last amount of money or income.
