Stop Smoking

Stop Smoking:

If you are a smoker, then the best thing you can do for your long term health and wallet is to quit smoking. People who smoke a pack per day spend up to £2k-£3k per year on cigarettes. By cutting down your cigarette consumption and then quitting, you will have extra money each month for food, alcohol, restaurants and for larger annual items like an iPhone or iPad. Keep in mind that most withdrawal symptoms last only 2-3 weeks so stop smoking cold turkey and you’ll instantly have more money to spend.


How To Quit Smoking:

There are many ways to quit smoking including:

1) Getting a free quitting kit from the NHS

2) Using the free Smokefree NHS website which is full of advice, tools to help you quit, and a Freephone number for support and advice

3) Purchasing nicotine replacements such as patches, gum, lozenges and sprays to control your nicotine cravings

4) Asking your GP for a prescription for specialist medication Zyban or Champix which reduce nicotine withdrawal symptoms which make it easier to quit (free for some students otherwise charged at the £8.40 NHS levy)

5) Using e-cigarettes, which use water vapour instead of unhealthy tar smoke, to help you cut back

6) Reading bestselling books like Allen Carr’s Easy Way to Stop Smoking (£6.99 on Amazon)

7) Telling all your friends you’re quitting, asking for their help and throwing away all of your ashtrays, lighters and smoking paraphernalia
