What a telling thread.

I started smoking everyday when I was almost 19. Within a few months after starting, I quit. I quit for 6 months, so my first quit was longer than my whole smoking career at that point.

Then I had a cigarette, because I thought the addiction was over.

That one cigarette turned into another 15 1/2 years of smoking.
That's 5,657 days spent smoking, every.... single..... day.
At a pack a day average, that was another 113,150 cigarettes.
At say, $2.50 a pack over those 15 1/2 years (this is a tough estimate) that's about $14,142.50 I spent for the pleasure of poisoning myself.
