When I  stopped smoking, they had gone up to $1.25 for a pack of 20 cigarettes.  I was smoking 3 packs per day!  Many of them just sat in an ashtray and burned up and I would immediately light up another one.  That was over $25 per week.  I finally realized that it was just taking the money out of my purse and lighting a match to it.  I don't know what they cost these days but I hear it's VERY expensive.

I remember when my mother got tired of rolling her own cigarettes way back in the 50's, they were about 17 cents per pack.  When they got up to 22 cents per pack, they packaged them with 3 pennies inside the cellophane so you would get change back when you put a quarter into the machine.

It's interesting watching a movie today compared to one from 30 years ago.  It seems that EVERYONE smoked in the older movies. In my photo albums, I have a cigarette in my hand in almost every photo.  it was the thing to do.  Today, you NEVER see that happen, not on TV either.  When I watch some of the old Dean Martin re-runs, there he is with a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other. 

I cannot understand why California legalized that pot. It stinks to high heaven... nasty stuff.  On the other hand, the Federal government is coming down on some of them pretty hard.. and I'm all for that!   About the only "smoke" I like is the smell from a good pipe tobacco.  That usually has such a nice aroma.  Don't see men using them anymore either.

Wow, that was a lot of cigarettes Majse. You must be mega wealthy since giving it up!  :laugh1:  :stars:

That's what I thought when I gave up smoking but the money went on something else. However, I do feel much healthier (I think! lol) and that was the main reason for giving it up!

I was a heavy smoker too - about 44-46 cigarettes every day. I couldn't wake up before I had smoked at least 3 cigarettes. And like you - I could start right away. So all or nothing for me  :yes03:

Passwords and email are totally different but with passwords, they have to be exact. If you used upper case when you set it up, it will only accept that.  It does not change all to lower case.  With email, it doesn't care what you have for an extender, it just accepts it.

At one time, only lower case was used but trying to get humans to use only lower case is really hard. So, the powers that be said okay... let them use whatever they want and we will change it to lower case for them.  I think life was easier when they let us do things for ourselves. When everything is so automatic, we just don't know what's going on. :thumb3:

I was a heavy smoker for 20 years but gave it up 23 yrs ago. It would only take one puff on a cigarette and I would probably start smoking again. No way do I want to go down that road again.

 I was shocked to see in my local supermarket that a pack of 20 cigs are 10. If I was still smoking 25 cigs a day that would cost me that would cost me almost 90 per week.........wow! lol Tax is very high in the UK!

Legalising drugs would send out the wrong message....that it's ok to be high!. I am dead against it. We have enough problems in the world as it is.
