The Little Online Book of Quitting Smoking

The cost of smoking

According to statistics produced by ASH, based on the cost of main brand cigarettes after the 2003 budget, smoking 20 cigarettes per day for 20 years in the UK will cost you £32,704. Converted into US dollars that's approximately $62,000 (correct conversion in March 2005).

Many smokers claim that money isn't a reason to stop. They have a resistance to engaging with the issue of how much money they spend on cigarettes. Of course, compared to your health, money absolutely is not an important issue, but perhaps you might like to spend a few minutes considering exactly how much money you spend on smoking, and what you could do with it if you stopped.

You have to be very honest with yourself when completing this next exercise. Work out how much on average you personally spend on smoking. Then multiply this amount by 260, to get the amount you will spend over 5 years. Add about 10% to account for inflation, customs increases etc. Then think about what you would like to spend this money on, if you could. A new car, paying off a chunk of the mortgage, a holiday - whatever you want.
