I usually browse through the web to find different kinds of news across the globe. Today, I found a pretty interesting article about smokers.
Current smokers who quit the habit may find that they can make significant cost savings, Fairinvestment.co.uk has suggested. Full story here.
The story actually made sense. It is true that smokers spend their money to buy cigarettes and a chain smoker could spend more in a year. I know that the costs for a pack of cigarettes have increased throughout the years. I remember it being 0.50 centavos a stick and now, I believe, local cigarettes cost about 2.00Php a stick.
If you think about it, if smokers give up smoking, they can actually save the money to help them pay their debts. Mortgage is one of the things that is hard to pay off. Let’s say you spend $30 for a pack of cigarettes a day, in a month you spend around $900 to $1000, if you buy extra packs, so in a year you spend about $12,000 for a vice that can kill you.
What if you give up smoking and save all that money?
I believe it can make a difference. I personally dislike smokers, well, not that I don’t associate with smokers, I just don’t like being around them when they smoke. It’s a great think that Ryan gave up smoking more than a year ago and I am so proud of him. I wish my father would be able to do the same.
Make a choice. To smoke, or not to smoke… and save tons of money! You also save trees!
