Dangerous for Your Health, Bad for Your Finances: The Toll of Living with a Smoker

There are millions of smokers worldwide and thus millions of people who live with smokers. Living with a smoker can be challenging; especially given that you’re constantly subjected to the smell. However, you also know how difficult it can be for smokers to quit smoking.

If you live with a smoker, however, it is in your best interest that he or she quit—as soon as possible. The reason is two-fold: smoking has a negative impact on both you and your smoker’s health and finances.

Health-wise, living with a smoker means you are regularly exposed to second-hand smoke. According to the United States Surgeon General, second-hand smoke is just as deadly as first-hand smoke; breathing it in can cause cancer, heart disease, exacerbate asthma symptoms and contribute to the development of a variety of other life-threatening health conditions. If you are living with a smoker, every time they smoke you smoke, too.

Finance-wise, living with a smoker is also detrimental. According to a study conducted at the Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital, smoking households in the United States spend a whopping $227 million dollars a year on cigarettes. That is $227 million dollars a year that could have been spent on groceries, bills, loans, savings and even vacations. If you live with a smoker, then, you might want to start paying more attention to how much money goes to his or her habit.

Living with a smoker is dangerous to your health and harmful to your finances. The idea that smoking is an individual habit is false; smoking has a negative impact on the friends, family and even community of the smoker. If you are tired of your smoker’s smoking habit, or if you are a smoker tired of exposing the people that you love to cigarettes, then it is time for you to get some help. Quitting smoking is a very attainable goal, something that you can even do in 60 minutes if you give the services of Life Coach to Quit Smoking a try. So get started saving money—and saving lives.

Quitting smoking doesn’t have to be difficult—you have the power to make yourself smoke-free for good! If you want to find out more about how to quit smoking in as little as 60 minutes, then visit us on Facebook and Twitter

Customer Testimonials

Hi Maureen. Just a quick note to say thank you. I have not had even a puff of cigarette since our session on 10 May 14. Any desire or thought flits straight out again. This is certainly a much less painful way to stop smoking. I recommend you to anyone who is interested, even had someone ask about weight loss. Hope all is well for you.  Regards
