Never calculated this before, but I used to smoke like 10,000 cigs a year

    If you put your old brand end to end, and multiplied by the number of years, how far would they reach?

    I was at about 7100 smokes a year. If the average time each one took to smoke was say 6 minutes, then I wasted 42,720 minutes a year or 29.67 days smoking those things. I smoked for 20 years. That is a lot of time I would like to have back!

    I think of all the money I burned up every time I see my banner. And what is worse, I probably let a good bit of that $$ burn up when I just left a cig in the ashtray and it burned itself out. UGH!!!

    I used to keep a large coffee can on my front porch and another on my balcony, for cig butts. When it would be full, I'd look at the huge number of butts in there and think about what abuse I was doing to myself.....thousands and thousands of those cancer sticks, years and years of that. And yet, I couldn't stop and didn't really want to most of the time. :(:blink:

    After almost a week into my 6th month of not smoking, my tracker says I've saved (extended?) a week and almost 4 days of my life....don't know how true that really is after 47 years of smoking, but I'm SO GLAD not to be smoking anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In my case, it's not about the money....!

    I don't even look at my banner any more. The enormity of the numbers is more depressing than encourageing. Time to buy that big screen TV. I un-smoked for it. Cheer me up?

    I never counted them up - but at approx 24 cigarettes a day, I must have smoked a lot of them in a year.

    Now I'm free :)

    20,800 per year (I was a really heavy chain smoker).

    Since I smoked 100's, that means they'd reach 2,080,000 mm per year, or 2080 meters. Which is 1.3 miles.

    You want to get really creeped out? Multiply how many cigarettes you smoked a year by how many years you smoked.
    A little over 1/4 of a million. Holy crap.:ohmy:

    ME .....

    2 packs a day (40 cigarettes) x 365 days in a year = 14, 600

    x 40 years of smoking = 584,000 cigarettes!

    More than a half a million !

    How my lungs are even still working is beyond belief!

    295,650 of the things have passed through my lungs in my lifetime, give or take a few I suppose for those long nights when smoking in a club or bar was still cool and I'd burn through them at a couple packs a night.

    At $2.25 a pack (a simple average of cost per pack when I started and today's price) I blew $33,260.63 worth of hard earned cash on a product that did nothing good for my health. I have a couple zippo lighters and an ashtray to show for it now, if I quit vaping today I would at least have more to show for my money in the form of cool vape gear.

    To put this in prospective, my first home loan was for less than my lifetime smoking expenditure. Kinda makes me a bit ill knowing that.

    It is what it is ... rather it is what it was, but no more.

    I was doing my bills recently and started having a panic attack because I had too much money left. I was crawling over everything looking for what I missed. heh heh, I missed the trip to the reservation for cigs.
