3 things that are a waste of money.jpg

Written by Ashton Deroy: The worst thing I hear people express is “I am too lazy to do that.” It is especially concerning when these people move in to commitments, spending money & setting up goals. If you are one of those people who think it is a miracle just because you got out of bed this morning, then this blog probably can save you a lot of pains in the A**. Here are some things for you to avoid spending your $$$ on dumb***! 


Gym Memberships

The nature of a gym membership is you pay a bi-weekly fee to gain access to a gym, their services and exercise equipment. Anyone who works in this industry will tell you the fitness life style starts in their facilities! “What a load of crap!?!” You don’t pay for the gym membership and magically become motivated to workout. 

Deadly Appeal: Sales reps act like a gym membership is a cure for obesity & laziness.

When I had one of these memberships it was literally because working out at home after work would wake my entire house up. Exercise begins with self-management. Doing push ups, sit ups, squats and yoga. All of which you can do aided by a video, not expensive gym equipment. If you can’t even hit play on an exercise video though… Don’t bother with the gym membership!

Avoiding this will save you about $70 a month or a $100 cancellation fee. 


Home businesses

It doesn’t matter if you are starting an E-Commerce shop from home or signing to work with Avon. Selling takes a lot of work, rejection & motivation! So maybe a home business is not for you… The facts are most of them do not break even, create web presence & connect with contacts. 

Deadly appeal: It is appealing to think you can make $$$ from home before you even get in your morning shower. 

Sadly though if you don’t intend to create an aggressive sales or marketing strategy you are better off not doing this. So much for opportunity, when it comes to sales based businesses. You are way better off sticking to needs based products like Insurance, Web design & graphics. 

Avoiding this could save you $30 a month minimum. 



Why does smoking come in this list? Well what this doesn’t share with the others is this is one thing you don’t usually approach to make your life better! However the deadly appeal greatly targets sedentary people. 

Deadly appeal: Smoking does not require a lot of effort & comes with social acceptance. 

The really bad downside is,


According to the open U.S. Medical journal smoking & a sedentary lifestyle is linked to cognitive deterioration as well as a great deal of medical issues. However there are no long term benefits to smoking so why start? Or why continue? This is the one thing on the list you rarely approach in an effort to make your life better. Unless you are one of those idiots that believe they are treating their mental health with a bong! 

(despite evidence piling up that smoking adversely affect cognitive function.

Quitting smoking could save you $1,500 a year.

Marijuana, not the smoke-able hero we think it is.

We underestimate the effects of smoking Marijuana. 

Ashton Deroy writes:Is smoking marijuana really healthy for your? Or is it the same evil as cigarette smoking?  It goes without saying if you smoke anything it emits CO2 which is bad for your lungs. “You could have someone with grade 8 science explain this to you.” 

Since becoming a valid medical treatment pharmaceutical companies have been trying to find preferred ways of delivering THC to the blood stream without inhalation or smoking it. 

Some social cultural problems with marijuana are what most people say about Marijuana “It works better than a controlled narcotic.” Then in the same breathe they will say “Oh and it is not addictive.” That makes no sense, however you can’t rely on the community of toque wearing stoners to provide you with your daily fix of common sense.” 

Community dialogue

This is the dialogue I had with a smoker Mariah Elise who believed if she smoked it could improve her lung function. However there are produced medical publications provided prove otherwise. 

“Smoking marijuana is associated with chronic bronchitis symptoms and large airway inflammation.” Joshi, Manish, et al. “Marijuana and Lung Diseases.”


“Not all medicinal marijuana is created equal. That’s what some experts are saying as they warn about the health risks and curtailed effectiveness associated with smoking medicine.” – GEORDON OMAND, The Canadian Press


“Inhalation is the fastest way to deliver THC to the bloodstream, which is why patients may prefer smoking an herbal preparation. But while this method of drug delivery works fast, smoking marijuana exposes the lungs to multiple chemicals and poses many of the same respiratory health risks as smoking cigarettes.” Health.Harvard

 Do I think Marijuana inhalation, smoking is good for you?

No, marijuana smoking is as bad or worse than smoking cigarettes. It causes a psychoactive reaction, it numbs pain with more strength than a narcotic.

While smoking marijuana may be a better alternative to a narcotic for benefits of appetite increase, mood changing and the inability to have a fatal overdose. It looks like oral consumption is the safest way to consume marijuana.
