Ol' BC Quit Smoking...

...and here's the result!

According to federal tobacco tax figures, cigarettes sales slid 4.2 percent
from 2004 levels in the largest one-year percentage decrease since 1999, the
group said in a statement.

No wonder it seems like I have more money every now and then. Sorry 'bout Uncle's luck though. If Congress would just cut income taxes in a meaningful way, they would recoup the lost revenue and then some.

Just a thought.

Ol' BC you are heartless.

How dare you quit smoling and cheat the federal government of the money they so need and deserve?

I had a teacher who quit smoking years ago. He faithfully put the cost of his 2-pack a day habit into a jar every day. In time, he was able to buy cameras, equip a darkroom and finance a photography hobby with the money.

Good luck! As I recall, you start to notice how you feel better after about a week.
