Simple ways to save money : Quit smoking

Despite the fact that the UK government has drastically changed the cigarette packet message in the UK and continually increases taxes on a pack of cigarettes, there are still significant amounts of people unwilling or unable to give up cigarettes. It is estimated that the average 20 day smoker will spend in excess of £2000 a year on cigarettes which ultimately will have a detrimental effect on their finances and potentially their health.

Even though many people make "quit smoking" a New Year's resolution there are very few people who follow these through to the bitter end. When you consider the potential financial savings and potential positive effect on your health, surely quitting smoking is something of a no-brainer?

The UK government is also slowly slowly marginalising smokers due to the various anti-smoking regulations brought in and the implication that this is just the tip of the iceberg. For many years we have had significant rumours regarding the potential health implications associated with smoking on a long-term basis, but many people are still afraid or lack the willpower needed to give up. In these times of economic hardship how would you spend an extra £2000 a year? Possibly a family holiday?

As they say, the choice is yours!
