If you've managed to quit, congratulations. If you are trying to quit, read up about all the types of cancers, lung diseases, and heart diseases. Every type of cancer, alone, is more frequent if you smoke. If that’s not enough motivation, consider how much money you're wasting every day, for years on end. As of last July, 2013, one pack of cigarettes in New York was about $14.50/day. Per year, that’s $5,292.50. In one decade, that’s $52,925. I don’t know about you, but to me, that’s a lot of money. I personally would rather spend the money on ten years worth of Caribbean cruises, or maybe a trip (or nine) to New Zealand. Start saving—your money and your life. Quit now!
