and save money
You’ll feel better about yourself, improve your health and you’ll save money that you can spend on other things – like a holiday! Did you know 1,000 people in Salford have quit in the past 9 months? You can too! See more health benefits of quitting.
Smoking 20 a day will cost you around £50 a week. When you quit, that’s an extra £200 a month – or £2,600 a year! If there’s more than one smoker in your household, that’s a lot of money which could be saved. Making a goal to save money can be a good way of motivating yourself to quit. Write down your goal, such as a family holiday, and use it to remind you every time you get a craving. Work out how much you could be saving right now using the NHS quit smoking calculator.
