Default Iced Tea.....

Trip, your avatar inspired me. My iced tea is three black tea bags and one peppermint tea bag. No sugar. It's delicious!!

Unfortunately, I made my own, so the money savings is no argument.

Yeah, they're beyond nasty.
Outstanding! Here's a thought. Get an empty pack of Marlboro's in the flip top box (do they still make them?) Use that to store the money you used to spend on cigs. In a few months, maybe less, you're ready for your next gun! And you have the makings of a pretty good story when you pull out the cash to buy it!

Did you make it in the sun? We used to make iced tea with a big pickle jar, a few tea bags, fill with water and leave out in the sun. Takes a bit longer, but came out pretty good!

I was only paying 80 cents or so to make a pack. So... At 1/4 pack per day (that's how much I'd cut down to before quitting), that's a 20 cents per day savings, approximately. This adds up to....

7,300 Pennies per year. Or, one gun approximately every 6-10 years I think, depending on what I want. Someone please check my math.

So, the monetary savings aren't much. The reason I quit was because I was getting out of breath just from getting dressed, and couldn't walk more than a hundred yards or so without stopping. That, and my son asked me to quit. And I know Cinder doesn't smoke and has no love for smoking.

Really, I put back more money just dropping my pocket change in a cup.

Thanks for the encouragement though. Makes a man feel good to have people cheering him on when he decides to make a major lifestyle change for the better!

Keep it up my friend. Some of the biggest anti-smoking people I know are former smokers. Your quality of life will only continue to improve day after day for years to come.

Well I'm happy for you. I hope you're feeling better, that's the biggest benefit.

Stamina and energy are through the roof. I think I'm good.
