    That along with a surgery that would assure me of being smoke free for 4 days with no choice to give me a nice head start were the two things i needed to finally kick it. I save $2500 a year by not smoking . It's all about being ready to stop and sometimes money can make you ready to stop a lot of things.
    Yup, money is the motivator for most things, but it just put it in perspective for my dad and he's truly gonna do this time, I just know it.
    Or I shall kick his hiney, lolz.

    When i started smoking in 1990 the top brands (Marlboro, Winston, Camel) were $1.67 to $1.98 per pack depending on where you shopped. A new company called BASIC were 98 cents a pack.

    As per usual one1, well said. It is what made it clear to him, not his health (although I'm sure he considers that) but all the money, up in smoke, literally.

    I do the same that's why sometimes it's confusing. Lots of typos and abbreviations
