Day Two (Part Two)

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.

One thought on “Day Two (Part Two)

  1. Smokes here in Australia are now $2 each. When I started it was $1.30 for a pack of 20. Glad I gave up, was hard but worth it being able to breathe again. Good luck, it does get better.
