The cost of smoking

Ever wondered how much money you spend/waste on cigarettes a day? What about a year? What about 20 years? How about how much time you’ve wasted standing outside a pub, the office, a party having a quick fag?

But it’s not only the time and cost of smoking that’s scary: smoking kills around 114,000 people in the UK each year.

Of these deaths, about 42,800 are from smoking-related cancers, 30,600 from cardiovascular disease and 29,100 die slowly from emphysema and other chronic lung diseases
