SMOKING CIGARETTES
« on: June 11, 2019, 11:15:49 AM »
 Well after some 30 years plus of smoking these suckers I QUIT. It has been five days so far and feeling better.
In NYC our wonderful Gov't charges more taxes than usual making Cigs over $13 a pack  :duh. In Flor $5 a pack.
The reason was health not money. However saving a pack a day 30 x $13.50 is serious coin.
I could lease a dam car instead.

If you truly want to quit, it's the best way to go. Very few people really want to quit, they just know they should; and typically their efforts reflect that no matter how much crap they buy.

Good for you (and your loved ones), Charles!  :thumb:

I quit in 2003. Our son's 11th birthday was just a couple days away when he finally told me what he wanted for his birthday. He looked me in the eyes and asked that my quitting be my gift to him. How could I not quit?

I went cold turkey from more than a pack a day. I never cheated once.

I thank him every so often for having the courage to ask this of me.

I want to quit. Finaciallly and health wise it would be a win-win.
Plus I think I read years ago in one of the audio mags that your hearing gets better when you quit.

  I will definitely agree with that. My Sinus condition is GONE. Not clogged up and yes hear more. Loving that. Food my favorite thing on this planet tastes so much better. DO IT QUIT TODAY.
