Quitting Smoking

What would you do with an extra $3,000 a year?

Assuming that a pack of cigarettes costs $8.50, a pack-a-day smoker spends over $3,000 in one year - just to buy them. If you think that's a lot, consider that personal health care expenses from smoking amount to $4.8 billion in that same year - just in Massachusetts.
