Perhaps because they never learned how to take responsibility for their lives and their actions, which includes prioritizing one's personal issues. There really is no excuse for smoking other than it is a personal choice. Obviously it is an expensive habit and extremely detrimental to the smoker and those persons who are around them especially children. If children are involved in a situation where they are not properly cared for, the state's family and human services or child protection services should be notified at once. An investigation will be done and the appropriate action will be taken. The person making the claim should consider the seriousness of their actions and the real possibility that any children involved can be removed from the family home and placed in protective custody. It is the moral duty of all adults to report any suspected abuse or neglect of a child, elderly person physically or mentally challenged persons or indeed anyone who is unable to "help themselves". National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-422-4453, National Elderly Abuse Hotline 1-800-879-6682, National Handicapped Persons Crisis Hotline, 1-800-426-4263. It's probably hard for them to quit smoking..

What is the cost of food for 2 people per month?

We live in California and spend approximately 1000 per month on average. About 750 is spent on groceries and 250 on eating out. We are trying to cut our costs by not eating out and buying only what we need, but still can't seem to get it down below those amounts. If your spending over a 1000 dollars on a couple of things there is a problem.. 750 dollars worth of groceries in one month.. that's horrible.. either ur eating extremely healthy or u jus want to spend money. in my advice I would spend about 200 on groceries only if it was needed..

What is the value of a complete set of Lincoln wheat pennies?

It depends on the condition of the coins, especially the rarest dates. Most coins in the wheat penny set (and there are well over 100 date/minmark combinations) can be had in circulated condition for between a couple of cents and a couple of dollars. The key dates, however (1909S, 1909SVDB, 1914D, 1922 plain, and 1931S) may cost a hundred to several hundred dollars in heavily circulated condition and upwards of $2000 or more in Uncirculated condition, and semi-key dates (and there are about 5 to 15 of these) can cost $5 - $25 in heavily circulated condition to up to $100 in Uncirculated condition. Clearly, the value of the complete set is heavily dependent on the condition of these keys and semi-key.
