Phew! You’ve worked hard. It’s time to reward your smoke-free achievements and enjoy yourself. When you quit and stay quit, it’s a cause for celebration. Use Monday to spend the money you’ve saved quitting smoking and splurge a little.
You’ve probably noticed that besides smelling better, climbing the stairs without getting winded, and seeing your skin glow, the benefits of quitting far outweigh the habit. You’ve hit a milestone! Now it’s time to reward your improved health with some gratifying experiences.
Smoking is expensive! If you were an average smoker, as of this writing you’ve saved an average of $5.51 a day, or over $2,000 per year. That adds up! Now that you’ve quit and stay quit, your money doesn’t have to go up in smoke. Think of all the nice things you could do for yourself, or others, with that extra cash.
Spend it wisely or save it, whatever you decide to do remember to relax and enjoy the gratification of your tremendous efforts.
Treat yourself to a day at the spa. Buy a gym membership. Hire a personal trainer. Buy new clothes. Go out dancing.
Book that trip you’ve always wanted to take and experience new cultures. Visit museums. Try a new hobby.
Donate to a charitable cause. Take your partner or friend on an all expenses paid date night.
There’s no end to the ways you can celebrate doing something good for you and the people who love you. Use Monday as a landmark in your commitment to quit!
