It's my Mom's birthday tomorrow and while I got her a card and she says I don't have to get her anything, I still want to.

Problem is, I don't have a lot of money. I'm an unemployed student and the only money I have is what my parents give me. I only have three quid, and I'm not thinking that'll really buy her anything.

So how much is a bunch of flowers where you are, roughly? I know I must sound like a right skinflint, but it's not that I don't want to spend a lot of money on her, I just don't have it.

Cheers for any help.

Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
Ibanez GRG170DX

Instead go out into the field and pick some yourself. But don't go into the tall grass.

This one wasn't funny. Sorry.

Do you reckon they'd be at a Tesco Express? The nearest big Tesco is ages away, but there's 2 petrol garage ones I can get to easily.

Don't go in the long grass! Don't go in the long grass!!

Seriously I'd pick some myself, being a student and all.

Don't get them from online florists. Too expensive.

Edit: My post is pretty pointless.

They stopped being funny long ago. Now they just seem forced and rubbish... Like Metallica.

Anyway, you'll probably be able to get something for £3, but I'd gather as much cash as possible just in case

Well you can give up, like me

You know, I "gave up" 2 weeks ago and still haven't gone a day without having at least 5 fags.

At first I tried to avoid it, but now I just can't be bothered

Exactly what happened to me.

I tried quitting full stop and I failed after about two days. Then I tried cutting down... Monday I had seven, Tuesday I had five, Yesterday and today I had four. I suppose I kind of am.

Yeah well, I had bought 240 off the internet, got through them in a week, and said that at the end of the week I would never have another. basically, I increased my intake from about 10 a day to about 30-35 a day for a week, then tried to stop cold turkey. was never going to work if I think about it
