Here’s a nudge to ditch the cigarettes (Picture: Metro.co.uk)
There are many reasons to give up smoking (your health being the big one).
Sometimes, though, only cold, hard cash provides enough motivation to make a change.
So it’s worth noting, we reckon, that you really can save quite a bit of money by ditching your regular cigarettes.
If you’re buying just a pack of Silk Cut for £13.40 a week, for example, ditching that habit will save you £698 in a year.
Think about what treats you could buy yourself with that extra cash?
If you’re smoking more than a pack a week, the amount of money you could stash away only increases – along with all the other benefits of quitting the cigs.
You can work out exactly how much you could save by ditching smoking with our handy calculator below.
Then please do use that as motivation to finally quit. It’s well worth it.
