Wow, $105.88 saved!

February 8th, 2008 at 04:12 pm

In the 1 week, 1 day, 11 hours, 10 minutes, and however many seconds since we quit smoking we've saved over $105! And we've only spent $24 and some change on patches so that's a nice savings, indeed! DH will need more patches on Monday but he wants me to get Step 2 rather than Step 1.

Now, if I actually had $105.88 lying around I'd add it to my challenge money! Wink

    Thanks! I *am* pretty wowed by it, to be honest. I knew we smoked a lot but sheeesh, seeing the numbers just makes it so evident and makes me more determined to never smoke again!

    Awesome! Until recently, I didn't realize how much it costs to smoke. After your first year smoke free, we'll all realize how much money goes up in "smoke." Congrats on you both going the first week!

    A woman at work set aside the money she used to spend on smoking. Her husband made gentle fun of her. That lasted until the second trip to India for the family paid entirely from her non-smoking money. The trips lasted in excess of six weeks, and the trips were made to see his family.

    My spouse smoked for years and from smoking, got bladder cancer; the cure for this is to have your bladder removed and pee through a catheter which you insert into your abdomen.

    It's a cancer that often spreads, so there's fun stuff like chemotherapy and surgery to remove more tumours.

    If more people knew about bladder cancer (nicotine spends more time in the bladder than in most places of the body), I think more people would quit.

    So, KEEP UP the good work and when you pee, think about your bladder and cancer.
