I quit smoking! It was one of those deals where I loved cigarettes. Every one was like a tiny hug in my lungs, but I also knew it was time to quit. I had seen some people close to me go through some stuff so it was time. I picked a date, and committed. Cold Turkey is the way to go. It is rough for the first couple weeks but it really mellows out. I remember the worst parts were the dreams where I would wake up thinking I had a cigarette.
So I am unsure how much money I saved since smokes have gone up in price several times since I quit, but I think I roughly figured out how many cigarettes I haven’t put between my lips.
20 / day x 365 days / year x 9 years = 65, 700!!!!!!!
That’s 3,285 packs
@ 4.25, the price per pack when I quit
3,285 x 4.25 = $13,961.00 — Holy Crap! That’s a brand new Kia!
If your thinking of quitting, hang in there, it only gets easier!

I quit cold turkey in 2007. Congrats! It’s not easy but if you really want to quit you stick to it, is what I learned.
