The plan for the following few months I’ll be spending in Italy is:
- save money,
- save money,
- save money.
In any possible way.
So first of all, I am happy to announce that I will start working on June (wohooo!) – and then I also thought of something else.
I am an awful pretty heavy smoker. Shame on me, it’s true. And Egypt didn’t make things better: everyone smokes everywhere. I even met a pregnant woman who smoked, and her doctor said it was ok. WTF. Cigarettes are so cheap (less than a Euro for 1 box) so nothing will stop you from buying more! That’s how it works there, and it’s heaven for heavy smokers!
Now, I know smoking is dangerous, bad, unhealthy and it also stinks (and I hate this!) so quitting smoking is not a bad idea.
In Italy the cigarettes I used to smoke before I left to Egypt are 4 Euros/box. 1 box a day for 1 month = 160 Euros. My flight to Egypt was 190 Euros return. No way I’m going to spend this money on tobacco!
So me and my Chinese piggy bank have a project: every day, instead of buying a box of cigarettes, I will put 4 Euros in the piggy bank, until my last day in Italy. Hopefully I will get a flight to South America out of it!
I think this will make quitting smoking easier, because it gives me a lot of motivation.
If you are wondering why I’m using the future, it’s just because I still have some cheap Egyptian cigarettes with me, and I don’t mean to buy Italian cigarettes when I finish these ones. In the meantime, I am already putting my daily 4 Euros in the piggy bank…
Wish me luck!
Is there any other smoker out there? Did you quit? How? I actually quit for almost 3 years once, and I remember it felt great. Let’s do it again: )
