Watching the news and seeing the the Feds are raising taxes on a carton of smokes by $4.00 as part of their new budget👍 First decent things these clowns have done since taking office.

I don't know how much a pack of smokes costs here now as I quit over 4 years ago. When I quit, the cheapest I could get them (legally) was $12.50/pack, They gotta be around $16.00 or maybe $18.00 a pack by now I would guess. Still not as expensive as in Australia but we're getting there :)

G’day 

At the current exchange rate that equates to roughly $20 a pack Australian. $1.00 each They were that price when I quit 5 plus years ago.

They are worth $1.80 each cig .. wow.  Now that’s $36 a packet. $252 a week and $1000 a month. That sorta money goes a long way to paying off a house. 

Mind blowing. And they aren’t getting cheaper either,  the price rise is automatic each year.

It IS amazing what a nicotine addict will sacrifice to ensure they always have some smokes!

I remember saying to myself I'd quit once a pack hit $5.00 Obviously that didn't happen. Went way past $10/pack before I started thinking about it.

Looking for an excuse and a destination for a short road trip this weekend.  We'll be going down to Florida in ten days, but I just picked up my new truck this afternoon and want to get some road miles on it.

 

The first accessory I put in the new truck: a brand new car seat.  The little gal can ride in style and comfort.

Very nice @Boo, I would guess you can go pretty much go anywhere you want with it 😊

 

Day trip planned.  Heading over to Tellico Plains tomorrow.  Do a bit of a road test on the Cherohala Skyway.  Head over to Bald River Falls.  Maddie and Cash can play in the woods.  Sugar Britches can do a bit of photography.  Papa Boo might even catch a few trout.

 

East bound and down, loaded up and truckin'...

Overcast sky.  With the exception of an occasional breeze, not much wind to speak of.  Had a big stonefly hatch.  The browns were really biting my little yellow sally fly...It was a good day.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
