Cost of Stopping Smoking
The average smoker that joins Smokenders burns through a packet of cigarettes per day and often more on Saturdays and Sundays. This is roughly a cigarette every 45 minutes for the 16 hours that we are awake every day. (P.S. It takes our body about 45 minutes to remove nicotine from our blood stream, thus creating the need for the next cigarette.)
A packet of cigarettes cost anything from R35 upwards.
Based on the cost of smoking 20 cigarettes per day the following SAVINGS and BENEFITS will be attained after you stop smoking.
|1 Day||R40||The day you stop smoking you can buy a magazine or a pot plant with the money you saved. Your blood oxygen level has increased to normal. Carbon monoxide levels have dropped to normal.|
|1 Week||R280||After 1 week you can take the family out for dinner or a movie. Damaged nerve endings have started to regrow and your sense of smell and taste are beginning to return to normal.|
|1 Month||R1 200||If you stopped smoking, after a month you could afford to buy a new outfit or put it towards a special weekend away as a treat. Your skin would begin to look clearer, brighter and younger too.|
|63 Days||R2 520||The cost of the Smokenders Programme is fully recovered. Endless benefits and freedom from nicotine addiction.|
|6 Months||R7 200||After six months, the money you’d have saved could cover a holiday or a new laptop computer. Your clothes and home would be smelling fresher as well.|
|1 Year||R14 400||After a year, if you’ve saved all the money you would’ve spent on cigarettes you’d have a nest egg equivalent to the average monthly salary of a Personal Assistant. Think what you could do with all that extra money. You would also suffer fewer coughs and colds.|
A New Freedom
As smokers we justify spending money on cigarettes, it’s our money and we can spend it on what we wish; however, we are only hiding from the real truth that we all know very well. We have no choice but to spend our money this way. We are hopelessly addicted to nicotine and have no escape from the endless cycle of smoking one cigarette after the other, 1 every 45 minutes.
But we are also free to make choices, and one of these choices is to stop smoking and break free from nicotine addiction. We at Smokenders understand (as ex-smokers) that this is not as easy as it sounds, however, we can teach you the skills required to stop smoking and be free forever; consider this an investment in a new live FREE FROM SMOKING.
Stopping smoking will of course result in you having a bit more money in your pocket. So not only will you have more money, you’ll also have more energy to spend it. Read what one of our graduates had to say.
