I know several people who quit smoking to improve their performance on the bike. Don't give up!

(I never smoked, and have been told many times how I can never understand )

Cigarettes are that expensive?

A pack, or carton?

My first wife smoked. When we split, a carton was up to almost $50 a carton in Indiana. Most smokers smoke more than a pack a day. It adds up.

My mother is a smoker and lives in northern Michigan. I haven't asked her what cigarettes cost there. She got her work hours cut from full-time to part-time. She's *now* considering quitting to make ends meet.
