A pack of cigs today costs around $5.00 So a pack a day would costs you 5 bucks. In a week that would be 35 bucks. One month would equal $420.

THE HISTORICAL RATE OF RETURN FOR THE STOCK MARKET SINCE 1900 IS 10.4% So lets do some math….
If you invested a $5.00 dollar a day habit for 30 years at 10.4% you would end up with…... $1,043,326.82.

There you go. Your habit has been keeping you from being a millionaire. Just a little perspective. I have had people tell me I was stupid for investing in the stock market because I could lose everything. Well 100 years of the stock market history has payed out an average of 10.4%. Tobacco pays out nothing…ever…. and in fact costs you more in health related issues. So which has the better odds?

Think I will go with a hundred years of history myself.

Also if you have an Iphone or other not so smart phone you can download stop smoking apps. A coworker showed me and it is interesting.
