7 days, 59 pennies (dollars) and counting!

December 23rd, 2011 at 04:46 am

Today makes 1 week since I've bought or had a cigarette. Whew! I've survived the first week! However, I know from past experience that I can never let my guard down. Not a month from now, not a year from now, not ever. And that part is a little tough to deal with. Meh, it is what it is, though.

Here's my Not Smoking jar this morning. It has 59 pennies in it! It's absolutely ridiculous that I've spent $60 a week, give or take, on cigarettes for however long! Oh well, moving on is the ticket, right? Next Friday I should be able to move about $120 from checking to savings. Not bad for two weeks of not smoking!

Anyway, I was off yesterday, am off today, and close tomorrow. I haven't spent much money at all in the last three days and that's a very good thing, indeed.

Today I have to run to the dollar store for eggs and more cleaner for the walls. Other than that I shouldn't have any spending. I love these no/low spend days. Smile

    Great job! I know it will get easier as the days go on. Just find other things to do. Keep doing what you are doing, and think of your improved health- and all of the money you are saving by quitting smoking!

    Thanks, mamasita! I've been spending a lot of my spare time cleaning the walls and furniture to help get rid of the smoke smell. It keeps me busy and is productive. Smile

    I see my doctor in February, assuming nothing comes up to drive me to her sooner, and she'll be overjoyed and shocked that I've quit. Every time I see her she asks me how many cigarettes I smoke in a day and when I'm going to quit. She's nice about it but it's very irritating. Wink

    So cool. Congrats to you! If you are even tempted for a minute, think of all your friends here that are cheering for you. You can do it. So proud of you!

    Very impressive! Keep up the good work. You are not only saving money by not buying the cigarettes, you are saving your lungs as well as things in your home. My mom was a heavy smoker and she couldn't understand why her televisions didn't last too long. All the cigarette smoke in a small room took its toll on electronics. You are doing fine!
