Good Evening,
I wanted to challenge everyone to think about something this evening.  How much is smoking costing you?  Really think about the financial sacrifice you're making to smoke.  Here is a brief worksheet to help you tally up the figures.  This isn't meant to be a finger-pointing exercise, but just helping with awareness.  It's no different than my food journal to track what's going down my hatch.  Sometimes it's eye opening to really look closely at things in our lives.  I hope this is beneficial for you.  Let me know either way.
Days off from work last year related to smoking illness -
Doctor visits, ER trips, or hospitalizations related to smoking (co-pays) -
medications you're taking related to your smoking (monthly cost) -
Amount you smoke per day?
Cost of a pack of cigarettes?
How long have you been smoking?
Total Cost of Smoking for You:___________________________
Is there anything else you could or would want to do with that money?  If so, please join us this weekend to start saving that money and putting it towards something that will benefit your life and loved ones.  Take care.
