When you’re living week to week on minimum wage & you can’t cover your expenses, you are pretty much forced to cut down on the amount of cigarettes you buy. It feels good & less stressful having money for other more important things.
I believe a really good reason to quit now is that there are just so many open possibilities to explore once you do.
First of all, you save money. You can spend it on whatever you actually want or need. It is a good experience having so much money in the bank when you really need something.
Second of all, the cravings dissipate so there isn't that much more you have to put up with. If you...
