Any other Quitters out there? Smoking.
I had my, (hopefully), last cigarette at 8:30 am on Thursday, January 8th, 2015. I had cut way down so that I could quit. This is my 7th day, one week mark without smoking. Dang it is hard to stop a 30 year, 30 cigarette a day habit. That is a pack and half for you nonsmokers. It is also about $10.00 a day.
I had a few health scares last month that put me in the emergency room twice. I ended up having an emergency tooth extraction, due to having multiple abscesses in my jaw. This was due to periodontal disease, caused by smoking.
I am quitting to save my health and my teeth. I just hope, my stubbornness can overcome my addiction. I am trying hard to keep a positive attitude, and keep focused.
The one good thing is. I will also gain about $3,650.00 of my income back. When I combine this savings with my quitting Star*ucks Coffee savings, of $600.00 a year. That is an amazing $4,250.00 a year. This money could have my 69 Grande restored in no time.
I just wish it was a little easier to quit.
