Nicotine

It's a chemical, toxic and highly addictive compound and one of the most available legal drugs around the world. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance similar to cocaine and heroin. And you probably know that they are most widely used in cigarettes and other tobacco products.

There are many negative consequences of the usage of nicotine. First, it's very addictive, second it's horrible for your general well-being and health, and third, it costs you a huge amount of money. Well, probably many of us do not like to listen that it affects our health and we might die early from it. Nor, to admit that we are addicted to something. No, no no that affects our self-confidence and self-esteem. We like to keep things under control and check. However, it's easier to convince you, by saying that you are wasting your money. Especially, in the longer term, you will save a huge amount of money by quitting completely. For many things, you dream about. Most things you dream about can be bought if you stop your unhealthy nicotine habit. There you go, a new car, an expensive trip of your dreams, or maybe even a new house.

Ok, so if you do not care so much about unhealthy effects to your body. Let's talk then what can be the adverse effects on your wallet and finances. You might ask, so how much do a packet of cigarettes cost? Well, according to the latest 2018 updated information, a packet of cigarettes cost approx. 11 euros. In turn, a packet consists of 20 cigarettes, so the cost of one, just one cigarette is approx. 50 cents. Can you imagine 20 times a day throwing away 50 cents? Just for 11 euros, you could buy many things a cinema ticket, a healthy lunch or breakfast, or maybe a nice group fitness class, 10 kg of organic carrots, 1kg of almonds. 10 kg of bananas fruits. It even gets more interesting if you look in the long term saving on smoking. If you smoke packet for every day of the year and multiply 365 by 11 that equals to, for simplicity approx. 3500 euros per year. Now, that is a lot, for this kind of money you could have a 1-month distressing wellness retreat in a spa of your dream location such as Cancun... Even more interesting, if you quit smoking for just five years, you would save 17000 euros. That is probably, the cost of a new car.  So it's your choice now! Quit now and stop complaining that you do not have money!
