I KNOW!! How scary is it when you actually do the maths. Mine is

£ 9.00 per day (30 Marlboro a day girl)

£ 63.00 per week

£ 3,285.00 per year

Flipping heck! I never actually gave up for the money, but the above keeps me from starting again.

At today’s prices and at 30 a day that would be £ 68,985.00 over the 20 years period that I have smoked. Oh bugger!
