Cryss and I found our motivation for quitting, it's called we spend about $544.00
a season,(136.00@month) on those things! We had no idea we were spending THAT damn much!
It's no wonder we can't seem to save up for anything. We found all our Camel Cash, which was something we've collected over a season, about 160
packs we smoked to get the cash. So we multiplied the number times the retail cost of the pack, plus tax, and walah! We spent that much to kill
ourselves slowly. we could've used that money for other things, like a new car downpayment. We found our salvation in the closet. Someone gave us a
bunch of free samples of "REVEL" a smokeless tobacco product, that comes in tiny pouches. They only come in two flavors, mint and wintergreen(which
makes it easier to convert to gum, when were ready). Point is, yes we're on edge, but it goes away. I noticed my shirt doesn't smell like the
bottom of an ashtray anymore, that's a major improvement. My house looks fabulous, cuz we kept busy, and the only thing tempting me is my own stress
I want to taste things, but I have to remember my diabetes, and not eat more than a fistful of food, at a one sitting. I've been losing weight, so
I'm trying to keep that up. It seems more stressful to quit sometimes, but I pull out that plastic bag of Camel Cash, with the figures on a piece of
paper, and I'm reminded why I'm doing this. Good Luck to all of you!!
