After being a pack-a-day smoker for the last 8 years, and numerous attempts to quit, I think that I finally found the perfect solution. In the past 5 years I've tried the patch, inhalers, Zyban, hypnotism... nothing seemed to work or last longer than three months and I was right back on the weed. At current prices, a pack-a-day addiction costs around $3000 CDN per year, even more if they keep raising taxes. $3000 could by a really nice computer! So I made the jump. Wednesday July 6th I smoked my last cancer stick - quit cold turkey. A week later, once the shakes and mood swings wore off, I placed the order for the 20" iMac G5 . And so I don't fall back off the wagon, I've promised myself that if I ever touch tobacco again, this beautiful lily-white reward will be packed up and shipped off to my little brother . And so, the goal is not to quit smoking... the goal is to make sure I stay clean or risk losing my new computer.
