Are you tired of seeing your finances go up in smoke? Did you know that quitting smoking could save you thousands of pounds a year?
To help you understand the financial benefits of giving up smoking, here is a simple guide to how much your habit is costing
The five a day smoker:
You may think smoking just five cigarettes a day isn’t making a dent in your finances.
However, the costs soon mount up. Every month you’re spending £78 a month on cigarettes. And within a year you’ve spent £949.
The 10-a-day smoker
10-a day-smokers spent £156 a month on cigarettes. That’s enough for a romantic weekend getaway, a wardrobe upgrade, gym membership or a new bike.
In a year, smoking 10 cigarettes a day will cost a whopping £1898.
The 20-a-day smoker
Smoking 20-cigarettes a day is costing you a fortune – £3796 a year to be precise. On a weekly basis, you’re wasting £72 on cigarettes and in a month, £312.
Within a year you’ll have spent £3796 on cigarettes. Enough for an exotic holiday abroad.
Smoking five rollies a day costs £480 a day. For those smoking 10 a day the cost rises to £960 a year.
And for smokers with a 20-a-day rollie habit, giving up could save them a very satisfying £1921 a year.
