Default Re: At 12.75 a pack its time to quit

I understand... but as others have said the price alone will not make you quit. Or at least that is my experience. I did that rationale, along with a bunch of others, so many times it is ridiculous. I finally quit for good... yes I said for good... I will never touch another one... then I got hypnotized. It worked for me!!! It gave me things to do during all of the times when I would usually smoke.

I thought it was bad enough to quit when it went from $0.75 to $1.00. I succeeded because I got militant about it.
Money wasn't the reason I quit. I just figured life would be better without the cigarette addiction.

I will agree with that money shouldn't be the only factor i just recently started to seriously time my runs again and was surprised that I'd dropped to 9-10 min/mile from mid 7's-8. If I still enjoyed it the money wouldn't have mattered but i really just don't enjoy it anymore and noticed that i'm really smoking just as a routine like in the morning with coffee and after meals. Yea the biggest thing I had to deal with in the past when i tried to quit was getting out of the routine of smoking at certain times and activities.

Early 80's maybe late 70's. I started smoking in 1984 and they were 90 cents a pack. Quit the first time in 1992 and they were around 1.75 a pack then I think.

Fell off the wagon in 93 and quit for good in 97. I think they were still less than 3 bucks a pack in 1997.

In Ohio.
