The day I quit smoking, I threw half of the pack away.

I could have given that to someone but then thought against it. Did not want to pass something which I was quitting thinking bad about it.

If the only reason he gave up smoking was you fining him, I will not be surprised to see him having a go every once in a while (when you are not around)

Re: quit smoking

The day I quit smoking I had 180 cigarettes left.
I gave them to my husband & he threw them all in the bin!
I thought he'd at least give them to someone!

As he said himself, either way it's a waste of money: if I smoke them, bin them or give them away!
(I would have sold them if I knew lol)

Or me.

I only smoke cigars, an average of less than one/month, but I know lots of cigarette smokers.

Either you waste the money or help to kill someone and waste money. I guess give them to someone you don't like

(and yes, I'm aware this is an old thread. learn to adapt to internet time!)
