British smokers spend £92k in lifetime
The average British smoker spends £91,832.43 on cigarettes in a lifetime, according to research. That is a breathtaking 373,302 cigarettes — or 18,665 packs — for each smoker. On an annual basis, that breaks down to £1,493.22, which works out to 6,060 cigarettes, Clerical Medical, the financial products provider, determined after surveying 3,000 smokers.
The average smoker puffs through 15.24 cigarettes a day. Ian Willmore, a spokesman for Action on Smoking and Health said: “This survey shows just how wasteful and addictive smoking is. Not only could it kill you, but it also costs you enormous amounts of money to feed your habit.”
