Who's counting anyway?

The manufactured on date stamp on my old Dell, the original frankenPC. One day older than The Big One!                 From 2011-06 (Jun)

Working on my old, 11 year old Dell (it is almost exactly the same age as my 6th grader), and an old Quit Counter popped up from a failed attempt at quitting smoking several years ago.  It congratulated me on hitting a milestone of not smoking 68,500 cigarettes since I "quit." 

Other statistics it is offering me:

Aaron - Free and Healing for Four Years, Eight Months, Eight Days, 12 Hours and 23 Minutes, while extending my life expectancy 237 Days and 20 Hours, by avoiding the use of 68501 nicotine delivery devices that would have cost me $11,401.17.

These days it is that last statistic that really gets to me.  I cannot afford this vice anymore.  Quitting, again, is in my relatively near future.
