Think of what the govt could do with that extra money if people didn't smoke.
The government take in over 2 billion each year from taxes on smoking, what you should be asking is where will the government get the extra money if everyone gives up smoking.

it would save it on the health budget--fags kill 50% of smokers and the dying process is usually long and costly !

Great economics there Liathroid , JDNO,

Cost - £1Bn per year
Revenue - £2Bn+ per year
Profit £1Bn+ per year.

So...if everyone gave up today, those services would still need to be provided for quite a few years, leaving a deficit of £1Bn (ish) per year for...let's say at least a decade.
Where do you see this £10Bn+ coming from ?

Increasing taxation on cigarettes (beyond what they are now) has been shown to have a negative effect on revenues generated from said taxation as people either smoke less, or give up (both positive results one could argue) or switch to untaxed cigarettes (more likely and far more economically damaging).

It would actually be worse than that Johnjoe, because as you rightly point out they'd have to spend the 1 billion a year for quite a few years regardless because of smoking related illnesses but they'd also be missing out on the 2billion plus in tax revenue for those years. Simply put the country can't afford people to give up smoking, it is something the anti smoking brigade blindly ignore and yet they call smokers stupid!!!
