You might have come across many advertisements and articles about simple money saving tips over the media like using energy efficient lamps saves you electricity bill, cooking food using a lid saves your gas expenses, end the costly subscription of your TV and make your life jhinga laala by saving your money again. And for young ones - drop the idea of cappuccino this weekend or a dinner date to zoom out your savings. Though all these measures are worth considering but you my smart reader, can save much bigger amount every year if you just take good care of yourself and your family members. I am talking about the biggest hole maker in your pocket - CIGARETTE. I bet if you are able to read this, you surely can count too :D. So, make a rough estimate of how much you spend in a month for your smoke thing. Let me take that approximately to Rupees 20,000/year, if you smoke 7 cigarettes a day. Quite a big amount that you are not saving and just fuming away in the form of smoke is affecting your health and life so badly even making you to visit the doctor frequently and paying his professional fees marking another pinch to you in the form of heavy expenditure. Isn't it ? Kick your butt, Now :D
Think about it, if you would have invested the same amount somewhere, you would have earned a handsome amount of interest over the years till now without even affecting your lungs and heart. Say, you invested Rupees 20000 every year @ 10 p.a. You know how much that amount will grow to in 10 years ??? Rupees 2,50,000 approx. I am sure you don't want to let that amount go as smoke in the air.

Even your career prospects can get affected with this habit of smoking. You may fall sick often and miss the work.  And mind you Mr. Smoker, it's not cool to smoke at all. If you are a real man, you can get girls inclined towards you without this tobacco wrapped paper in your mouth. So, stop believing the myth that cigarette attracts women. No, it rather takes you away from her by causing impotency. And if you are so much into being cool, I suggest jinjola powder or Navratan thanda thanda cool oil for you as you may like :). Act before the need arises for you to visit some Hakeems to cure your impotency while performing these chimney tricks of inhaling and exhaling smoke by yourself.
*Idea cum advised issued in girls' interest* Make you boyfriend quit smoking and induce him into investing the money saved in that matter. By this way you can generate your income for your gifts to be received, ice-creams to be eaten and dressses to be purchased. :D
If someone is arguing that he is so much in love with his country that he wants to continue its rich heritage which includes smoking hukka is advised to check its harmful effects which are even more dangerous than cigarette. But there's also a good news for the folk that as it affects more than a cigarette, the savings you are gonna make after quitting it will also affect you more in goood way. So, stop self destructing yourself in the name of your rich heritage. And, the young minds who wants to try it once only to know what that smoke offers to them are told that they simply can ask an elder to get the information. No need to even touch that cigarette.
So, from today only, withdraw your share of smoke from the environment as there's no less of it emitted by the vehicles you drive and smoke into.
Also, feel some responsibility and take care of your non-smoker friends as me, as even they suffer your sins even when they don't smoke by getting your second-hand smoke forcefully. So, till the time you get over with this thing completely, don't smoke in smoke restricted area in consideration of which I am not going to ask for a vote that you are empowered with. You can just leave a comment or share it with others if you support :P
Let's grow a healthy and smoke free nation !!!
The author dropped the idea of burning all the cigarettes of his friends as he thinks that it will be better to let them do it in their own style of putting it in their mouth and trying to inhale the shit filled inside it as it will work both ways. ;)
