I admit it. I´ve smoked cigarettes just to know what it was like and I didn´t like it. I just didn´t liked the taste and if we think the habit of smoking is a lot of money. If we do a hypothetical math exercise we can take a person who uses 1 pack every day. Let´s say a pack of cigarettes is 5 dollars and 50 cents, multiply that 365 days a year, which would equal $2,007.50. In 5 years you would have spent $10,037! That´s quite a sum.
I was browsing for information on smoking and I found out an interest fact. I always thought cigarette´s butts were made of some cotton fiber or some sort of paper, but it is actually a plastic that takes decades to decompose. On top of that cigarette butts go down the sewers reaching the sea. A percentage of all ocean and beach debris is cigarette butts, OceanConservancy.org.
The Marine Debris Program also gives information on the composition of garbage that affects oceans, also mentioning that debris such as cigarettes butts have been found in the stomach content of some birds and other marine animals.
Browsing, I also came across this little computer that makes you a program to gradually stop smoking cigarettes. The LifeSign QuitKey Smoking Cessation Computer it is so small you can take it with you. You just need the commitment to stop smoking. My goal with this post is not to make you quit smoking, you do that if you want. Have a nice day!
