How Linda’s Health Habits Helped Her Save £1,246

Linda shares her stop smoking experience. Highlighting the financial rewards that she gained from making a change to her health habits.

Linda’s not alone in using money as a motivator to quit the habit for good. Every person who buys one packet of cigarettes a day will save £55 in one week, £236 in a month and £57,451 over the course of 20 years.


In the September 2018 issue of Health Matters, published by Public Health England, it was reported that In England, around 60% of smokers want to quit, 10% of which intend to do so within 3 months. Around half of these people will attempt to stop smoking without support. However it’s proven that a person who smokes is four times more likely to stop for good if they have support throughout their stop smoking journey.

The September issue of Health Matters states, “There is clear evidence that the most effective way to quit smoking is with expert behavioural support from local stop smoking services combined with stop smoking aids, including the prescription tablets Varenicline and Bupropion, NRT and e-cigarettes. Smokers who get this package of support are up to four times more likely to quit successfully than those who try to quit unaided or with over the counter NRT.

Linda says, “I had my last cig 6th July after 40yrs smoking, thanks to Rachel at One You East Sussex (and Champix)”.

Since Linda took the steps to get support throughout her quit journey she has been smokefree for five months, after smoking for forty years.
