Years ago my girlfriend quit smoking and started saving the amount of money she spent on cigarettes. After a year, she went to France for 2 weeks with the saved money...
So I decided to do the same. I didn't smoke, but I started putting the $ of 3-4 packs a week in a savings account (named Smoker account lol) and have since been travelling every winter to a new destination.
Everyone can put $20 a week aside (or a bit more) and invest in something they want.
If poor people can smoke and spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars, they can all afford to travel or to invest in something they love too...
I have friends who think that I make s much money and envy me for travelling, I tell them I chose to travel when they chose to smoke...

A common misconception among smokers is that they digest better if they smoke after eating. My tip is to brush their teeth straight after eating and drink some cold water. That way they will postpone smoking for at least an hour and their breath will stay fresh.
Don't overdo it with the water after eating! You don't want to dissolve your gastric fluids too much! Remember that the target is just to avoid smoking by keeping your mouth fresh 306
I have been a smoker for about ten years. I also have been a hair puller for about sixteen years. I have decided to quit smoking and that was six days ago. Since I have quit smoking I don't seem to pull my hair that much anymore.
I that the two maybe related my anxiety level as slowed down even though I don't smoke anymore therefore so as the hair pulling.
