The average smoker gets through approximately 11 cigarettes a day, costing them at least £150 pounds per month. For smokers who smoke a 20 pack a day, that’s almost £300 per month. And if you’re getting through 50 cigarettes per day? Well, you’re looking at taking a £700 per month hit to your bank balance.

Even though smoking has become less socially acceptable in recent years and we’re more aware than ever of the risks of smoking, with the NHS reporting that around 78,000 people in the UK die from smoking related illnesses each year, Cancer Research has found that 9.4 million Brits still smoke. That’s 1 in 5 adults in the UK. So why not kick the habit for good and spend your hard-earned pay cheque on something that really rewards you?
