Why use the cost of smoking calculator?

This cost of smoking calculator shows you the true cost of smoking. This will show you how much it will cost to smoke on a weekly, monthly, yearly basis. Whilst you will also find out how much it costs over a 5-year and 10-year period.

This cost of smoking calculator will hopefully deter you from ever starting the habit. However, if you do smoke, this may show you the true amount of money you are spending on your habit that could be put elsewhere.

Why should I care?

Never-mind the cost of smoking, think about the cost on your health. We all know smoking has a huge impact on your general health, and if that isn’t an incentive to quit, hopefully seeing how much you could save is.

You have been smoking all this time and not had issues with the money you have spent on it. So why not quit and put the money into a separate bank account. Therefore, allowing yourself to save up money for a rainy day and secure your future.
