Days Without a Cigarette: 1.666
Days Without Nicotine: 0
Dollars Saved: -$31.79
Just a quick note on the dollar amount. I’ve had a few questions about it, so rather than pop back and forth between comments, I figured it would be easier just to add a post explaining it.
Right now you’ll see that quitting has me in the red by about thirty two bucks. That’s the cost of the nicotine patches ($42.59) minus the cost of the pack of cigarettes I’d have smoked yesterday ($5.40 where I normally get them) and the one I didn’t smoke today. So it’ll be five more days before I’m in money saving territory. I’ve still gotta buy a bunch more patches before I get to the end of their system, so that number will go up and down a bit as we go.
I should note that I’m not factoring in the savings from my wife not smoking. She’s vaping to wean herself off of tobacco and I didn’t wanna have to keep track of the costs of all her vape oils and shit as I did this. But when all of that gets factored in, my real savings will always be greater than the amount at the top of these posts.
