As of yesterday, it's been a year-and-a-half since I smoked a cigarette.
Let's run the numbers for old times' sake, no?
Number of cigarettes I would have smoked between April 3, 2009 and yesterday, had I not stopped smoking on that date: 16,425. Jeezus Christ.
Amount of money saved: $2,929.13. Almost three thousand bucks. And that was smoking cheap cigs bought on line; if I'd been buying name brand smokes at the corner gas station, that figure would easily be double.
You know, cigarettes used to be cheap. I remember when a carton was eight bucks; it was an affordable vice. Frankly, that's the main reason I stopped smoking; I got priced out of the market.
And I'm glad.
So, whoopee for me! I'm a quitter.
