10. I finally quit 15 months ago.

Pack a day habit since 1986. Hadn't quit prior to that; I'd dismissed health concerns, ignored the odor of my clothes/car/apartment, and gotten used to ashes any and every where.

But when the better half told me last spring "you known you're spending $250 a month on that stuff, right?" it finally clicked, and I snuffed my last butt. Two hundred and fifty a month. I felt pretty damn stupid right then and there.

For transparency: I immediately began vaping, but crunching then numbers, the cost for that comes down to only ¢.35/day.
