Facts and Figures

10 - The number of months it has been since I quit smoking.
303 - The number of days without smoking.
$757.50 - The amount of money I have saved since quitting.
12 - The number of days I have gotten back.
3,030 - The number of cigarettes I haven't smoked since quitting.

Overall, it hasn't been easy but it's definitely been worth the struggle. I know that some are able to casually smoke after they quit but I don't think I'd ever be able to be a 'casual' smoker. I loved smoking, I didn't want to quit but knew it was in my best interest to quit, so I know that if I tried 'just one' it would quickly turn into me smoking full time again. I miss it but know this is for the best. It's funny because once you quit smoking your sense of smell improves...great, better to smell cigarettes with, because I'm not kidding when I say I can smell someone smoking as they pass me on the interstate! That's one benefit I could do without! Thank you for all of the encouragement and support you've given me over the last 10 months, it helped me greatly!


  1. You should go on a vacation with the money you saved. OR go on a shopping trip.

  2. Impressive. Congratulations.

  3. Congratulations again!! :) I think you should add the time it would have taken to smoke those 3000+ cigarettes!
