Default Quit smoking?

I am going on about 3 years of quitting cigs. Cheated maybe 3-4 times since then (mostly when drunk at weddings, etc)

Anyways....thought this could steer some folks into making the best decision of their lives:

Congrats stainless on the 3 years. I hit 4 back in November. I quit both smoke and smokeless. The on thing your picture didn't have was the increased amount of money for guns and ammo!!!

I'm going on a few months right now. I did cheat with a cigarillo when I broke Cinder's gun. I was upset that I broke my baby's baby. But I got her and Sue some peanut butter and chocolate ice cream too....

One year... 16th of next month. I'm looking forward to my life insurance rates dropping.

That's no joke.

$5.50 per pack (last time I looked) x 15 packs per month = $82.50 (+/-) per month to spend elsewhere. Not huge money, but it adds up.
4+ lbs of Unique or Bullseye purchased locally
4+ bulk packs of .22 ammo (if you can find any)
1000 +/- cast bullets.

It seems you are not going to get out here alive regardless. Eating fast food 3 times a week carries an 80% risk of heart attack and stroke. This about the same as smoking.
So who is going to get you? Ronald McDonald or Joe Camel?

How about not sucking down poisonous smoke AND managing eating healthy? Hmmmmmm....Thats a novel idea.

It sure aint rocket science. Some folks go out looking for reason to justify their poor lifestyles. Me, I wanna live long enough to see both my daughters get married and go far in life. My love for McD's cheeseburgers aint worth it. As we all know that **** will KILL You quick!

Ronald McDonald? Not a problem.

Carls Jr. on the other hand... Could be trouble.
