A Taiwanese father is winning the hearts of many people online when he voluntarily quit smoking cigarettes after his first child was born.
The man reached this decision to give up the unhealthy habit after the birth of his first born child. He said that he wanted to provide a healthy environment for the baby and maybe even set himself as a role model for his child.
“I would save up all the money that I would otherwise use for buying cigarettes. Every time when the addiction kicks in, I would put away 50 New Taiwan dollars ($1.62). Now, I habitually stash away NT$50 whenever I get them,” he said.
In the pictures he provided, netizens estimated that the man had already saved up over 60,000 New Taiwan dollars ($1,947).
After dropping the habit, the father noticed significant changes in his health. He added that with the money he has saved up, he plans to treat his wife and kid for a holiday in the future. However, the father expressed that even if he doesn’t save up the money, he’d still kick the habit because health is priceless.
