I have been a pack a day smoker for over 16yrs now. Average that out and you will see I have spent around $40,000 on cigarettes.
Let that sink in.
Put it this way. This is how I came to see it.
Go ahead and take out a dollar bill. Go ahead..... Now roll it up real nice. Ok, get out your light and bring one end of the bill to your lips. Alright, now light the end of the dollar.
Yea. That's what I thought. You said hell no!
Well that's how I started seeing my smoking. Every time I lit up. I didn't see the coughing. I didn't see the family I may lose. I didn't see, smell, the aroma I carried with me. I saw the money. I feel quite shallow now but there it is. Perhaps stop smoking adds should go from that angle. Worked for me!!
