Quit for Your Finances

Smoking is expensive. In fact, the amount of money you spend on smoking may surprise you.

  • Multiply how much money you spend on tobacco every week  by 52  to see what you spend every year on smoking.
  • Now multiply that by the number of years you have been using tobacco.
  • Then, multiply the cost per year by 10 for the upcoming 10 years and add it to the amount you have already spent on tobacco.

If you’re a one-pack-per-day smoker, you’ll probably save over $15,000. What would you rather do with that money, continue a deadly addiction or use it toward a down payment on a home or purchase a new car?

Quitting tobacco means you’ll pay less for health and life insurance. You’ll incur fewer costs due to tobacco-related problems, medical bills, and frequent trips to the doctor.

If you quit smoking, you will also decrease the chance of fatal fires and serious burns and stop exposing your loved ones to the dangers of secondhand smoke.
