I think we all have different concepts of what we consider a luxury in our lives.

If you had to give up a 'luxury' what would it be and why?

What do you consider a luxury (internet connection? dinner and a movie?)

Luxury? The greatest luxury is happiness. As such, I couldn't live without my friends. Anything else, I could give up. I would miss my internet dearly, but I would live.

Why do you consider happiness a luxury item?

but hmmm...I need the limo--and the masseuse is therapy--as is the sauna--

But seriously, there is one thing, I don't consider a luxury--but the price of it is so devastating--and I've kicked ALOT of habits, but this one is the most treacherous ever--

CIGARETTES.

I guess I consider the luxuries to be, cable, phone and internet. I can do with out the cable. The internet is my link to the world, and the phone is the link to my husband. The cable is just a link to bad programming. So it is cable for me. It could go and I wouldn't blink an eye, but God help anyone who messes with my phone, or my internet.

Serenity, I quit smoking in December. It was hard, but it can be done.

and dontcha just hate when people who have quit say that.

The internet is definately a luxury... But, unfortunately, a necissary one (can't even spell the word. I must be drunk lol) right now. My cell phone is a luxury, no doubt about that. The biggest luxury that I've discovered though, is loving me for me... Not everyone has that discovered that one yet. If I had to give up one it would definately be my cell phone
