$38 a Week! $2000 A Year!

So last week I was sitting around at work and decided to figure out what I spend a week on cigarettes. Since the prices were raised I have thought a little bit about it but not a whole lot. Well at $5.57 a pack and a pack a day that equals just over $38 a week and over $2000 a year on these dang things! Can you say CRAZY!!!????!!!! Its insane! Do you know what I could do with that money????????? So I decided this morning that when I am done with this pack of cigarettes that I am DONE! I am done killing myself with them and done spending money on them. Maybe I will take that money and save it for a trip to Cancun or something. :) Sounds good to me! So wish me luck and yell and scream at me if you hear that I smoked another one after today! :)

Good Luck on your goal.

and my cat likes to do the same thing - I've got photos of him curled up in the bathroom sink, in the newspaper recycle box (empty and partially full) and other boxes you wouldn't think he could fit in.

Hugs and you can do it!

You go for it not only about the money but your health. It is hard but I also quit cold turkey and have been smoke free for 10 years and 5 months. Think how much more craft supplies you could buy with the extra bucks. May God be with you
