When a "simple" brake job turns into a complete overhaul including all new hard brake lines, parking brake cables, drums, springs, calipers, rotors, etc. Curse you, rust!

Would you believe that one of those things was idle roughly and at 2k? Damn sensors need a tap or two every once in a while :P

Been trying to quit... I don't even have a lighter in the 12v so that wouldnt help.... Ive cut back a lot though. Just had my 2nd cig in like 4 days.. Thats from being at 3 packs a day like a month ago. Started when I was 12 and I'm 17 almost 18 now... Sad that this would be my 3rd time quitting before I was legally allowed to smoke....

I fixed my cig lighter today. Put in a lighted one so I can find it at night. Been smoke free for 3 years.

I rather spend the money on parts. 2/pack a day habit = $5700 per year. Sticking to my jeep habit.

Think of how much more tea and jeep parts you could have with 7k.

At least invest in e cigs. That way you can still get your fix for a fraction of the cost. When I got my mom one it cost me roughly 2x a carton of what she smoked but paid for itself in a short amount of time. Now it's been like 2 or 3 years since she's touched the e cig.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

You must have crazy cheap cigs then. Around here it's about $13 per pack.


$13 x 365 days per year = $4,745 per year per person.
Now double that because there's two of you doing it = $9,490.
And that's at 1 pack per day, you said 1-2 packs, which means you are spending up to $18,980 per year as a household!


My god man, think of all the Jeep parts that would buy you!

I hope the chemo doesn't make you sick like it did me. If I had quit when I was your age I wouldn't have got lung cancer. Wise up.
