I hadn't thought of it that way, but I guess even with the thousands (several) that I've spent on guns since then, I'm still money ahead.
Pick an "EVENT" to symbolize it marking the very last pack and the very last drag on the very last DAY !
I threw away half a pack in a garbage can next to Yellowstone Lake after my then wife and I ate lunch.
Before heading down to the Tetons for a family reunion organized by my "then" Mother-in-Law.
Why then and there ?
Because, if I could get through five days with my Mother-in-Law without smoking,
there was NO crisis at work or home that would cause me to have to regress and start again.
And, yes, I announced my motivation to the entire extended family including that nice lady.
