I brought crochet projects with me to do in the lunch room. I just had my anniversary on Valentine's Day. Two years smoke free thanks to knitting and crochet. Cigarettes here are around $7.50 per pack, so I'm saving $224 bucks per month. More money for yarn now and no venturing out in bad weather for a pack or going outside to smoke.

CONGRATULATIONS on your 2 years of being smoke free!!!!! I bet it's a lot more rewarding to spend money on something which you can appreciate and others can too!

Thank you for sharing your story!!!!
