Stylish Cigarette Cases
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration now has the power to force tobacco companies to place graphic warning labels on cigarette packages, but who wants to look at gruesome photos? U.S. officials announced that the images would include "emaciated lung cancer patients, a dead body in a morgue, and a baby confined to a respirator (presumably the result of secondhand smoke)."
Will the warnings deter habitual and would-be smokers? It's possible—similar graphic warnings are credited for a 5% decrease among Canadian smokers. Australia, Brazil, Chile, Iran, and Singapore have also adopted warnings on their tobacco products.
When I heard about the proposed legislation in 2011, my initial reaction was that smokers would simply place their cigarettes in stylish cases, thus obscuring the unwelcome images. That's exactly what happened in the European Union in 2003 when the government introduced prominent black-bordered warning labels on cigarette packs. Cigarette case sales surged, and the invasive labels were effectively hidden from view. I did some research on cigarette cases and was very impressed with the selections. Even if you're not a smoker, many cigarette cases are as beautiful as jewelry, and perfectly suited for carrying business cards, credit cards, and cash. More importantly, a stainless steel cigarette case protects credit cards from RFID theft and demagnetization.

Smoking kills. And if you're killed, you've lost an important part of your life.

Smokers Love Cigarette Cases
Small cases are enjoying a comeback as a convenient way to carry business cards, credit cards, identification, and even small electronic devices. Credit cards stored in a stainless steel cigarette case are protected from RFID scanners—sensitive information is kept safe from potential identity thieves.
Cigarette cases work especially well for small, loose items because they’re designed to store cigarettes and protect them from being crushed. Among smokers, cigarette cases often serve as fashionable accessories. Many cigarette cases are made from precious metals, and adorned with jewels, engravings, monograms, and artwork.
Did you know that Peter Carl Fabergé, famous for his beautiful Fabergé eggs, also created exquisite cases of gold and gems for the family of the Tsar? Some of the Fabergé cases are worth $25,000 and more.
Smoking Saves Lives
During World Wars I and II, cigarette cases were popular with soldiers. Many veterans credited cigarette cases with saving their lives. The sturdy metal cases of that time were capable of stopping bullets.
