Cigarettes Not Smoked

As most of you know we measure statistics of our quits by the amount of cigarettes not smoked and by the money not spent on them. My husband is a 'numbers' type guy since he was a helicopter and fighter jet mechanic. He has been the manager of the machine shop where if the metal parts are off by even a 10,000th of an inch it has to be remade. So I told him how many cigarettes I hadn't smoked and he decided to figure out some different metrics that blew my mind.
So here's mine:

I'm 2 years quit and that is 14,600 cigarettes I haven't smoked. I used to smoke 100s lengths.

14,600 cigarettes equals 73 cartons

If a carton of 100s is about 4" tall 73 cartons is a stack almost 24' tall!

If a 100s cigarette is about 4" long that's a line almost a mile long (9/10 ths) if laid end to end.

For me that's another great motivator and something to be proud of as I add more miles and height every day. I think it would be cool if you calculate yours and share them here. Even one cigarette has a measurement so post it and be proud!
