The Deal

I made a deal with my husband last night. See he smokes and has forever , actually I used to also until I got pregnant with my last child, and then I just never started again. Thank God!! But, he hasn't had so much luck with his attempts at quitting so last night I made a proposition with him. I told him if he quit smoking that I would let him buy the mussel loader (gun)that he has been wanting forever!!! Of course, this would also be his birthday present,, but he doesn't get it unless he quits. deer season starts sometime in November, so I figure if he has quit by June that gives me time to make sure he doesn't start back up again, and we can buy the gun at the beginning of November.

I think he is going to take me up on it. I know how hard it is to quit because I had tried many times before I succeeded, I also know you really have to have the want in you to do it. So my thinking is maybe this will give him the extra incentive to do it!! Here's hoping!!!!

Maybe you could set up a jar to put the money that would have been spent on cigarettes into it then when it's time to buy the gun you'll be paying cash for it.

My hubby and I both used to smoke and what got us to quit was that there were times when the kids needed something and we would say "we don't have the money for that" but yet we always always always had the money for cigarettes. It was a huge eye-opener.
