Quit Smoking Savings Calculator

Every cigarette you don’t smoke means more money in your pocket. Our smoking calculator gives you a good idea of how much that could be – from one week into a whole year after you’ve quit for good. The price of one cigarette may not seem much, but it soon adds up – whether you smoke 5, 10, 15, 20 or more a day. And if you’ve been smoking for a few years the costs (and more importantly savings) might surprise you! Check out our handy smoking cost calculator chart to see how much you could save.

How much money can you save by quitting smoking?

The good news is that as soon as you decide to stop smoking, you should start seeing the savings roll in. Our quit smoking calculator provides a good idea of what you could save each week, month, and year.

Although you may spend money on NRT products to support your quit journey, in the end it should work out a lot cheaper than smoking. And once you’re smoke-free you won’t spend a penny on anything smoking related! Plus, check out these provincial reimbursement programs that you may be eligible for to help cover the costs of NRT products.

It won’t be long before you notice that extra money in your wallet, bank account or jar above the fridge. Literally seeing these savings stack up can be great motivation to help you stay on track and meet your smoke-free goals.

How will you use the money you’ve saved by quitting smoking?

You can use the money you save by quitting smoking for whatever you like. However much you used to smoke, you could be saving hundreds of dollars within a few months, and possibly into the thousands after just a year.

You could spend this extra cash towards:

  • A family holiday abroad;
  • Upgrading to a newer or bigger car;
  • Making home improvements;
  • Getting a pet;
  • Your passion – whether it’s sport, music, art or something else.

Setting savings targets is a great way to stay motivated and keep on track. You might be amazed by how soon you reach your financial goal after quitting smoking.
