Have you ever sat down and thought about how much money you have spent on smoking. Today a pack of cigarettes costs an average of $6 per pack, much more in some places.
Let's take a look at an average smoker
1 Pack per day = $6
30 Packs per month = $180
365 packs per year = $2190
20 years of smoking a pack a day = $43,800
From my experience the cost was much more because not only did I buy a pack of cigarettes, I bough a drink and a pack of gum to cover my disgusting smell of my breath. On average I would say I spent $10/day on the habit which equates to $3650 per year.
Think of what you could do with the money. Better yet, get a jar and each day you quit put the amount of money you would have spent on a pack, drink, gum, etc. into that jar. Watch as that jar grows to an enormous amount of money and then treat yourself to something special.
Some ideas to spend the money on:
- Take a vacation
- Have your teeth whitened
- Buy a new car
- Have your house painted and wipe that disgusting yellow off the walls
- Buy your family something nice to thank them for their support during your quit
- Get a massage
- Take your family out for an expensive dinner you could never afford before
- Start a retirement fund - your going to live a long time now!!!
Congratulations on your decision to quit. Never give up!!!!
