$1 a pack blows my mind. I can’t remember what they were when I started — $3 or $4 each? When I lived in Chicago a few years ago, cigarettes were $15 per pack! Alcohol added up for me too. A single six-pack never seemed like much, but when I sat down and did the math I was spending an embarrassing amount per year. Good luck!
