So.... I quit smoking cold turkey in 2003 when I found out I was preggos.<br><br>
I've been going through some things lately and in a weak moment, I went to the store and got me and pack of ciggys. The girl said, "M'am that will be $6.81 and I was like WTF." Seriously......I might have actually said WTF... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br>
If that's not an incentive not to start back I don't know what is.

That's nothing, here in Canada they can easily be over 12 bucks. Glad I don't smoke anymore <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

£6 to £8 for a pack of 20 here.<br><br>
That's $9.40 to $12.50 according to xe.com<br><br>
$6.81 is about £4.30. Cigs haven't been that cheap here for <i>years</i>.<br><br><br>
And this is now making me crave a cig. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br>
I will resist! (It's not like I have any anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> )

I was planning to start smoking, but now I've changed my mind.

Yeah I don't think cigarettes were that cheap when I first started smoking 11 years ago...

Smoking is for squares anyway. Seriously, it's what our grandparents did. Lamesville, daddio.

Pretty sure it's close to $10 here. My son and daughter smoke. So much for growing up in a smoke-free home. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/brood.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":brood:">

Yep around $10 here. I started smoking when they were around $2 a pack! It's crazy how high they have went up since then. Glad I quit.

Yeah, that's what I used to smoke. The price factor was a major reason I quit! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Yeah, cigs are pretty expensive.<br><br>
And yet people still buy and smoke them.<br><br>
You'd think they were addicted to these things or something. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">
