Benefits of Quitting Smoking

So, what exactly does one do with an extra $360.00 dollars they saved on not purchasing cigarettes for a whole month? I started with a little home improvement. Flowers in the back yard, a newly planted garden in the front and a new screen door. And still had money left to pick up a small patio set. Yea, I am loving this.

At 53 years old I am starting to realize how life changes both physically and emotionally. I strive for a life of simplicity. I am winning the battle with type II diabetes, created a plan to have all debt paid off in 4 years including the house, taking advantage of every opportunity to live life to it's fullest through adventures in nature, hiking, biking, loving and learning.

    Congratulations! I know how tough it is (7 years for me) but what is ahead is so worth it! Beautiful garden 🙂

    You have also benefited every organ in your body which for the past month received their full supply of oxygen rather than the depleted supply when you were a smoker. You have a garden growing on the inside, too. Stay clean.

  4. Lovely! I knew a couple who were both heavy smokers. They decided it was time to quit, and for one year they put aside every dollar they would both have spent on cigarettes. At the end of the year they had enough to take an extended European vacation.
