UPDATE: I fixed most of the math, added the average cost of smoking an e-cigarette, totaled some numbers, and changed some of the wording because I felt like it.

So, I smoke cigarettes. I have for a lot of years, it’s a nasty habit, and I don’t like doing it. When the e-cigarette revolution occurred, I tried early on to get onto the bandwagon with the blucigs brand, but didn’t really like it. Flash forward something like 2.5 years and I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time figuring out a good e-cigarette setup that works for me. I’ll spare you the lengthy diatribe about it, but will quickly drop my current parts list:

eGo C v2 Upgrade 900mah Pass-through

Kangertech MT3s 3.0ml Steel Bottom Wick w/ 1.8ohm Atomizer

MsT’s Bakery Snickerdoodle or Cappuccino

In any case, to help me see the direct result of the good choice of never smoking real cigarettes again, I’ve thrown together a quick javascript function to show how many days it’s been since my last cigarette, how many cigarettes I have not smoked, and how much money I’ve saved in doing so. It’s only mostly accurate — I smoked about a pack and a half or so a day on average, and the easiest way to make this work was just to assume one cigarette per hour throughout the day. If I really get pedantic about it, I’ll fix the math up to handle awake hours and asleep hours (at least an average period), and then do additional math to figure out exactly how many cigarettes I was smoking per hour I was awake. I’ll get there one of these days. I’m also actually going to be honest about it since it only really means anything if I don’t lie to you or myself about it. Funny how that works.

I’m pretty certain no one else cares about this, but fuck you anyways because I do — and I want it public on the webbertubes.

Why are you still here? Go away.
