Good News Flash

Seems that cigarette sales in the U.S. are at a 55 year low. That's good news. Even better news is that it is a downward trend. You can read the full article here.

I would like to think of every pack of cigarettes not purchased as an investment in one's health. Plus, the money (which adds up fast) can be used for better things.

I quit smoking about 7 years ago. It was the greatest thing I could do for my health and for my family (I have two kids, plus one on the way).

I think about the money I could have saved when I smoked even though I didn't smoke as heavily as some people I know.

My best friend is trying to quit too. I keep reminding her that it's worth it on every end really. She sometimes worries about money. If you buy a pack a day and they are at least 3.00 a pack, that's saving more than 20.00 a week! That adds up. You could put that money toward savings, kids, future, vacation, house, new car, anything.

That was really a great savings and is my plan of doing anytime. Yes Ma'am I'm still battling that terrible and very bad habbit. I have done quitting before but was not totally fortunate to get rid of it. Hoping it will be soon.
