Up in Smoke

It’s crazy to think that, two years ago, I stopped smoking to save that $4.25 a day I was wasting on my habit.  It’s crazy to think that the state of New York has been hiking the taxes on cigarettes with at least the justification that pricey smokes would discourage smokers.  And it’s even crazier to think that in a few months time, I’ll be paying $4.25 a gallon for gas.

It begins to look like the more sound financial decision is to drive less and smoke more.  Now, ain’t that some shit?
