    It's OK dude it's for a good cause!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    I was just thinking of quitting also. I had the same offer made to me. I figured out at 1 pack per day it equals on the low end $180-$200/month. That adds up nicely to be able to add to the collection. Best of luck with it.

    Funny enough it sounds like my agreement with my wife except I had to give up motorcycles. I quit smoking 13 years ago so I know exactly what you're talking about It took me about a year to fully quit. My biggest problem was going to the bar and drinking beer. I was conditioned to need a cig with my beer. To be honest the feeling like you need a cigarette never goes away. At least thats the way it's been for me. It just gets easier to deal with the longer you've quit. After 14 years I still feel like I need one sometimes but I dont. I would probably barf if I did after keeping the nicotine at bay for so long.

    Reformed smokers never really get to a point where"the urge" truely goes away. I quit for 12 years and started back up 15 years ago. In those 12 years, I don't recall ever not having the urge to light up, but somehow managed to do so.

    So, $200/month x 12 months = $2400/year. Yup, that would certainly buy some nice guns & ammo.

    I don't use the term "quit" I say stopped. The reason is, for me, I think once a smoker, always a smoker. I stopped in 1982 and haven't had the urge since then. Same with alcohol, stopped in 97 and haven't had the urge since. Every one is different. I just simply willed my self to stop and did. Must have been the right time for me. Promises made to myself and family are promises kept. Now dippin' baccie is a "whole nother smoke" my mouth still waters when I see an ad for snuff.springerdave.

    Don't worry, soon enough our communist government is going to outlaw smokes altogether. Then it will be real easy to quit.

    I recently gave up smoking in the house for the new baby; now I won't be able to smoke in the breakroom at work or when the wife and I go out for dinner! I've got almost nowhere left!

    Once our communist / fascist government pass the Hussein Health Care bill, they will control diet, dangerous activities, smoking, drinking , guns, weight, birth, death...
