Motivation Needed, Help Me Decide!
So here's the deal; I'm quitting smoking and need some help with motivation. The way I see it, at $5 a pack, I'll be saving $1825 over the course of the next year from what would have otherwise be spent on cigarettes. That means that if I can make it to the 3 month (90 days) mark, I'll be past the "hump", and will consider myself a non smoker. Having done that, I feel I deserve a reward
So, in 87 days, I'll have $1825 burning a hole in my pocket for something really special Question is what. I'm thinking a nice 1911, or possible one of those bad ass Sig's from the custom shop. What would you get for that $? Make it good, quitting sucks and I need all the motivation I can get.
If you succeed, you deserve at least a Wilson Combat 1911.
I have been continuously rewarding myself, with a series of $500-$1000 guns, since I quit in 2006 (after 35 years). The motivation does help, and since I still have dreams about unfiltered Camels, I have to re-motivate myself often.
Thanks Bisley. If you could do it after 35 years, I know I can. I gotta say though, it's a b*tch! And nicotine gum, that stuff is like chewing a mint flavored ash tray. Urrrrghhhh!

A Wilson Combat would be nice, but I saw one of these babies at the shop the other day, and man this thing looked nice!

I'll bet they shoot like a dream.
You think that this forum is about guns, exclusively? Ha!
I, too, gave up smoking after about 35 years, but I didn't bribe myself with a gun. No bribe would've helped me. All I had was sheer willpower, and...
...The absolutely most useful motivation of all: SEX!
When I didn't smoke, I got "French"-kissed more, because I tasted better. And I lasted longer "on the job" without running out of breath, which was a very positive motivation to both me and my partner. My technique improved, because I now had sufficient stamina to spend time exploring the various methods of, er, application.
The improvement in the erotic part of my life was all of the motivation I needed, to stay off of the weed for good. I recommend the technique to you.
Well, Steve, I hadn't really thought about that aspect of it, but now that you mention it....
It's crazy, I can't think of 1 good reason to smoke, but there thousands of reasons NOT to smoke, yet all my poor little brain wants to do is have a cig.
Had a good long range session yesterday. That helped
Here's another way to think about it; What is your life worth? I think mine is priceless.
