I dont smoke

Posted in Staying quit 01 Feb 2020

Today is day 91. Ive saved just over $5000. I just booked a NZ cruise for 12 nights with the ultimate drink package x 2. Leave in 55 days. You too can book a holiday. I just banked what I spent aweek in a side account {as it was money I didnt miss} and wella. To see the money mount up it give me another reason to see how long it takes to get my account back to $5000 again.

    Red-67 - I banked $280au per week. I paid $70 for a pack of 50 and I smoked up to 40 a day {and that was a good day} I smoked 1mg so buying what was cheapest wasnt an option most of the time. Im glad that part of my life is over

    I have always been jealous, sort of, but not really, of the money savings you guys down under can post. I was able to smoke, 3 years ago, for about 2usd a pack / 20, so I'm only up to about 2000usd. :) But, I have made a point of using that money for things I enjoy, and probably would not have, if I was still smoking. Some places here, I think they are up to 7us or even higher, but I always went for the cheapest I could find. Even then, I would do without, before I would pay 4us. I can't even imagine paying for smokes down there.
