8332 smokes times around $1.00 a smoke = $8332 extra in your bank account .

its just a shame that it never actually works out that way - you just tend to spend the money elsewhere without realising!!

it never cost anything remotely like that to smoke... I smoked chop chop.

approx. $2 a day to smoke whatever I felt I needed.

Approx $960 not spent on smokes. Cant always say saved.....Seem to need to spend it somewhere to replace the addiction/fill the void for a bit.

Gave up smoking three years ago and brought a dirt bike.

The dirt bike habit cost me about the same or more, but a lot more enjoyable?

:)

Long ago I'd buy a carton of Winny Blues for $68. What does a carton cost now?

probably close to that for a packet J-man!

I remember as kids (13-14 - circa 1988-89) scrapping coins together to get about $3 to buy packs of Escort Blues back in Adelaide!

I remember I was going to give them away if smokes went as high as $3 per packet. I started smoking when cartons were $8:50
