Smoking isn’t only costly to your health.

Cost of Smoking

  • Smoking 20 cigarettes a day would cost you more than £3000 a year.
  • If you spent that money on other things you could buy all of the following: Samsung Smart 4k Ultra HD 65” LED TV, Playstation 4, 8 Playstation Games, A trip for you and 10 friends to Nando’s, Ipad Mini 2.
  • Raising cigarette prices can make young people less likely to buy them as they do not earn as much money yet.
  • Tax on a pack of 20 cigarettes is 16.5% plus £3.93.
  • The two biggest UK tobacco companies, Imperial and British American Tobacco made £3 billion and £4.5 billion profit respectively last year.
“The financial benefits of stopping smoking can quickly add up to a significant sum of money.”
