Think of all the money you'd save it you quit: $6.00 a day, $42.00 a week, $168.00 a month, over $2,000.00 a year in that bad habit. That's a membership to a very exclusive, beautiful gym !

Us smokers are a dying breed NJkate... we need to band together against those who plan on living for a long time - they should be thanking us for leaving behind our hard earned SS monies for them to live off of

Default Cigarettes

Thanks for the info and now I am really glad I quit. I had no idea they were that expensive. Hmmmmm lets see...if you do the math at $7.50 a pack assuming that your hubby smokes a pack a day that would be $2,737.50 a year and that doesn't include the extra pack when you are going out for drinks and dancing...we all smoke more at those times and it also doesn't include how much more it would be if you smoked too. WOW..talk about the economy being bad, huh? WHY should anyone have to pay so much money to enjoy something like a cigarette that will end up killing you or costing you $113,000.00 worth of heart surgery like I just had..ooops...not a non smoking post here...forgot.

Ah...what part of "this is not a discussion about the cons of smoking" did you not get? How much do you spend on your mocha chica grande latte?

We rednecks have no use for shoes, spas or pilates anyway, so might as well smoke.

LMFAO !!! Nasty, miserable people and their spewing anger.

Sorry, guess I better learn to read. haa haa haa !!!!

This is the reason they shouldn't air lung cancer commercials and anti-smoking commercials, if people want to kill themselves, why bother ??
