Secrets of Success

Quitting Smoking



Quitting smoking isn't easy, but it is easy to see your savings grow. My boyfriend and I recently quit smoking, so every day, I transfer $14 (the cost of 2 packs of cigarettes) to savings. I'm hoping to use this money as a down payment on a house...a way better investment than cigarettes!

  • I quit less than 2 years ago, myself and I'm not sure where the money went that I used to use for cigarettes. But I'm sure glad I don't have to come up with it everyday. I've enjoyed used to track the amount of money I've saved and the number of cigarettes I've NOT smoked since quitting. It also shows the number of days you've added to your life. - by MACEWOMAN
  • I smoked my last cigarette January 1,1998......I wish I had saved all the money I would otherwise have spent on this unhealthy habit!(It is strange how I always managed to fund my 2 pack a day habit-but now have no idea where the money came from!)Best of luck to you both,and to everyone else kicking the habit! life now for me is golden-no lasting lung damage-no burn holes in my clothing-and no more ashtray hair! - by KIMKURZ
  • Good plan! Even better for NYers because we pay up to 13 bucks for one pack! ONE pack! So imagine that! Keep on keepin on! - by TASOGAREBAN
