How much is the investment in yourself to quit cigarettes for good?
First, how much do you smoke?
Retail figures compiled by market research company AC Nielsen reveal more than $3.5 billion of cigarettes were sold in supermarkets last financial year – a 7.1 percent increase on the previous year – while the total number of cigarettes sold jumped 2.7 percent to 10.392 billion cigarettes.
Smokers statistically spend between $6,000 and $9,000 or more per year on cigarettes (and that’s conservative, not taking into consideration the extra costs related to illness). If in doubt, just take a look at these figures based on the cost of a packet of cigarettes being $8.80 for a pack of 20:
A recent university study found the average life expectancy for non smokers is increased by an additional 13.2 years for females and 14.5 years extra for males . 90% of lung cancer occurs in people who have smoked.
The 3 Week Quit Smoking Challenge is guaranteed to work, or your money back in 3 months. Because you want to quit cigarettes, why not check this out. On average people will be putting this money back into their pocket in approximately 7-10 days (of course this will depend on the number of cigarettes a day you smoke).
How much is a year of your life worth?
The average smoker's life is 14 years shorter than a non smoker. By quitting you are literally adding 14 years onto your life. If you make $20,000 a year, then certainly a year must be worth at least $20,000 – but we all know, you cannot even really put a price on a year of life.
So why don’t you take the money you would have burned up in smoke on cigarettes and invest in becoming a non-smoker for life? Take the challenge today!
