The cost of tobacco

Published Friday 29 Jul 2016 By Demelza Obrien

Currently, smoking a pack of 20 a day costs more than $8,300 a year! Imagine how much money you could save if you stopped?

With annual tax increases on tobacco set to continue each year until 2020, smoking will become more expensive than ever.

For help and support to quit smoking, talk to your local health provider or doctor or visit www.quit.org.nz or www.smokefree.org.nz.
