What would you do if you could save an extra €3,000 a year?

Jet off on a couple of trips abroad? Buy a new car? Maybe you’d put some money aside for future plans, or use the extra cash to ease the financial pressure we’re all feeling at the moment.

Whatever your plans, did you know quitting smoking could be the way to get you there?

Nicorette is on a mission to help smokers quit for good, highlighting all of the amazing benefits that can come with giving up cigarettes.

There’s no denying that quitting can have a really positive effect on your health and wellbeing, but the amount of money you could save is also a huge incentive.

That’s why Nicorette has created a handy online savings calculator, that will tell you EXACTLY how much you could save if you quit smoking for good.

After you input how much you smoke each day and what you spend per pack, it’ll calculate how much you could stand to save if you were to quit smoking for good. For example, if the average smoker spends around €9.75 a day on cigarettes, that adds up to €292.50 a month and a whopping €3,510 a year!* Yikes…
