Day 8 and no going back now..new car

I only smoked about 10 fags a day but started when I was 11 years old, so smoked for nearly 30 years.....was costing about £50 a week

Day 8 with patches. I have committed myself to a brand new car on Saturday (Mokka 1.6) so I cannot afford to go back to smoking now!! But I have a nice new car to pick up on Thursday!! and believe it or not my new car monthly payments are cheaper than smoking...and Im still saving about £76 quid a month after paying for my car.

Happy days :)

    Hi Rach and welcome!! :)

    Well done for getting past the first week - and what a fab way to smend your fag money, had a look at one of those when I had my car MOTed and it looks fab :D

    I hope you love it - and you'll be able to smell that lovely new car smell too :cool:

    Doesn't it bring it home to you how expensive fags are?

    Have been off the fags for just over 9 months, and saved about £2,300 :eek:

  • That is brilliant! what an incentive to stay quit. Well done!

  • a new car is defo better than having fags thats for sure! xx

  • Hello, Rach and well done on your 8 days! A new car has to be better than stinking fags and with it costing less as well...how good is that!:D

    Keep up the good work and treat yourself to some nice trips out in the car!:)

  • Thanks to yu all

    Thanks everyone!! Everytime I think of cigs I just look at the pic of my car. Soon be able to drive it. Should be picking it up Thursday.

    I know last time I quit for 5 years, you dont really see the money you save as it gets swallowed up by other things, thats why this time I purchased a new car...so everytime I sit in it and drive it, It will be because I QUIT fags....wahoo

    Little bit chesty today...but thats to be expected.

    Good luck to all...it can be done

    and thanks for the suppport of all ex smokers who understand the addiction

    ;)

  • Fantastic

    That's the way to do it! When I am sitting in front of my future 60 inch television I have saved nearly £600 so far towards it I will have a look at your new car in the advertisements lol, to think it could have all gone up in smoke! Good Luck Rach

  • Love it!!!
