Are the holidays a stressful time for you? If so, you are not alone. Many report feeling higher levels of stress during the holiday season. For some it may be the extra pressures of hosting gatherings and for others it could be the financial burden the holidays bring. Approximately seven in ten Americans report money as a significant source of stress.
Smoking over the holidays can prove to be pretty costly so you may want to consider cutting back or even quitting all together to save some money.
If you are currently smoking one pack per day (20 cigarettes) and were to quit smoking this holiday season you could save:
- $8.00 per day
- $56.00 per week
- $243.33 per month
- $2,922.00 per year
