Many of you don’t know, that I used to be a smoker.  I started not long after college and quit smoking in 2007.  I used to smoke anywhere near 5-10 cigarettes a day, sometimes more, sometimes less.  For me, the main motivator for quitting smoking was money.  When I tallied up all the money I had spend on cigarettes over the year and saw the final number, it blew my mind.  I started to think about all the things I could have bought and done with that money that had gone up in smoke.

Money is never going to be a motivator for everyone, but it certainly was for me.  With the New Year just days away, a lot of people will have the new years resolutions to stop smoking.  If that’s you and you’re really going to give it your all, this handy infographic created by CVS and Huffington Post, shows you what you can expect in the days, weeks, months and years after you quit.
