I really like the idea of "what is the quit worth", and the value being measured in so many different ways. Yes, there is the money savings, today at day 40 it is $477.00, but more importantly is the 702 cigarettes not smoked and, most importantly, the 5 days of life saved. I am hoping that within the next 2-3 years I will become a grandmother, so those days of life saved are very important. I want to be able to play with my grandchildren, and hacking up a lung is not conducive to that type of activity.
Yes, coming into the spring and summer will definitely trigger sitting outside with a drink and a smoke, that is one of the reasons that I knew I would have to quit in the middle of the winter, so that the worst of the cravings were behind me when the weather becomes nice. Definitely did not miss smoking on the balcony this morning with a wind chill of -28.
Wishing everyone a smoke free day, and to staying warm!!
