Cost of Smoking 

If you are a smoker, you’ll know smoking is expensive! Imagine how much money you could save if you stopped. We are not talking small amounts here – someone smoking a pack a day spends about $177 a week on cigarettes, which is over $9,200 each year.


Someone who is earning the median hourly wage (in New Zealand this was about $24 in 2016), would have to work for almost an hour just to earn enough to buy a packet of cigarettes. All that effort going up in smoke. Do you really want to spend your time working, just so you can smoke?
