Stop Smoking Statistics

How much are you spending on your smoking habit?

If you find yourself considering the cost of STOPPING smoking:

Just take a few moments to look at the table below. You can instantly start to see that the number of cigarettes you smoke a day, simply affects the amount of money you would be saving over a year.

-20 A few months £1,000.00
20 2 months £1,500.00
30 6 weeks £2,250.00
40 4 weeks/1 month £3,000.00
60 3 weeks £4,500.00
80 2 weeks £6,000.00

Why don’t you take the money that you would have spent out of your monthly wage packet on cigarettes and spend it on becoming a non-smoker? Because then, you will be saving 2-3 thousand pounds a year. That's like getting a pay rise of 3-4 thousand pounds a year before tax. When you think about it you can't afford NOT to stop smoking.
