People have a lot of excuses not to quit smoking: “My life is too stressful to quit right now.” “I don’t want to gain the weight that comes with quitting.” “I’m only a social smoker.” All of these excuses can easily be disproven, but there is another one smokers sometimes use that may seem harder to argue with – “I can’t afford a smoking cessation program.”
Times are tough, and a lot of people are living paycheck to paycheck. While some smokers may think they need the help of expensive quitting tools, that is simply not the case. There are many free and low cost smoking cessation program options to utilize. Aside from the obvious health benefits of quitting smoking, reminding smokers how much money they will save by quitting can be a useful tool. If they are concerned by the cost of smoking cessation programs, have them add up how much they spend on cigarettes per week, per month, or per year. The numbers are staggering and may surprise you!
