The tobacco industry spends billions to make tobacco cheaper — but quitting is free
The tobacco industry spends more than $7.5 billion a year on making tobacco more affordable to encourage people to buy its deadly products.1 Offering discounts and promotions makes cigarettes more appealing to people with low incomes. But the real way to save money is to quit. People who quit tobacco save thousands of dollars each year, and getting help to quit is free. That leaves more money in your pocket to pay for the things you and your family need, like rent or a house payment, food, and prescription medications.
