Will you stop smoking? Free yourself from the chains that affect your life

The dangers of snuff

I could never understand why people smoke or start to do so. As you do, your life goes into a spiral of despair, pain and death.

I will not write paragraphs of snuff, and other sermons. I do not intend them to see how bad it is snuff, because I know very well.

I will try to help them take that step towards a new world that awaits them with open arms.

Given the state of today's global economy everyone is trying to save what you can, because life is more expensive every day. Have you ever calculated how much they spend on snuff? A seemingly silly question but what if we do it? There is a formula that lets us know the amount of money we spend daily, monthly, yearly ...

Calculate your own that. I assure you it is a waste of time. I'll help with an example:

"I smoke cigarettes a day 20 * X 30 days in a month = 600 * cigarettes a month.
That amount was divided by 20 and gives me 30 * packs a month, multiplied by 4 a pack worth € me € 120 * per month. If you multiply that by 12 months of the year has given me: € 1440 * per year spent on snuff! "

* Data variable.

Do you still think it's silly to have done?, What would with 1440 €?, Will they pay debts that have suffocated?, Do go away?, Do you keep for future complications?, Why your son / daughter? ...

Smoking is very expensive, you have proven.
