Well done Gra - great to get to the 50 day milestone, 2 months, 3 months then 100 days to look forward to.

Looking on your stats money saved, you could have some fun with that


Good luck

What you doing with your extra time. 60 a day takes some doing - if you are awake 16 hrs, thats 4 an hour, one every 15 mins, must take 3-4 mins to smoke one thats nearly 25% of your waking hours spent fagging it.

Out of interest how much is a pack in Oz?

Guy at work has been working in Nigeria, he said 80p a pack of B & H there and said it was too cheap not to smoke. Sort of crap you out with as a smoker - I should know:D


The big 50!

Hay there, Gra!


Wow! Look at us -- both former chain-smokers and both of us past the 50 day mark!


I couldn't have picked a better quit-buddy!



andrew packs of 50 over here are like $25-$30 per pack packs of 40 are about $20 they are very extremely high tobacco tax here the government has like 80%-90% tax on them when u consider in indonesia (about an hour away by plane) u can buy a pack of 20-25 with a lighter and still get change from $2 or a carton of 200 for $5 over here a carton of 200 is $105 not sure where u are from but if the u.k. $105 is equal to 71 pounds also our import rate is worse we are only allowed to bring in 200 for personal use from oversees and if we try and sneek a few extra in we lose our entire allotment and get fines as well heck last year they were going to charge me a 2nd lot of tax on a carton i took over there with me (cant get mine in indonesia) the tax they wanted for a single carton was $74 a year ago and there has been 2 price rises since then i guess that this is why our government is the first in the world to introduce a carbon tax to pick up the slack from the dwindling pool of smokers well i sure hope the happy non smoking lobbyists are going to be happy now that they are going to start paying more taxes for the govt losses from tobacco taxes lol dont get me wrong im happy i decided to quit

but lets face it driving the prices to rediculous levels isnt going to get ppl to quit just make them broke.

hey legs how you going just seen ur day 56 post will drop a note there for u
