Save money - Take up smoking!
I smoke roll-ups, I can usually squeeze about thirty cigarettes from a small pack of tobacco and as I'm not a heavy smoker, this usually lasts me a week. The overall cost is under a fiver.

Possibly because my tastebuds are ruined, I can't actually tell the difference between most poor quality own brand food and the higher price branded produce. I would think that this saves me, on average, around ten quid a week because I find shit food palatable.
This equates to a saving of over £250.00!

I smoke rollies too.
It's almost stupid how much less they cost. Taking into account I smoke fewer of them, I reckon it's about 10% of what I'd spend on real fags.

I have to say something else too. I think we should thank the anti-smoking campaigners. Before the ban, I was smoking at least 20 a day, sometimes 30. I knew that I would have to give up smoking, there's no arguing that heavy smoking like that is a big risk.

However, since the ban came into force, I probably smoke 5 - 6 rollups per day. That kind of consumption I can live with.

So thanks campaigners - you have arranged things so I don't need to give up.

I switched to rollies
About a year ago when the price of 20 fags got to around £7, which was a cost of about £210 a month or £2500 a year (gulp). Since swapping over a 25g pouch of tobacco costing £7 lasts me about 5 days which is a massive saving. They're a nicer smoke as well I think, I wouldn't go back to cigarettes now even if money was no longer an issue.

Obviously the best solution would be to stop smoking completely but then how will people know I'm cool?

quit a while ago, but started again due to stress and serious lack of willpower. switching to rollies is saving me about £20 a week, which is paying my cable bill instead.

Save even more by finding offices that have outdoor smoking areas and claim your free baccy in the form of discarded butts. If you are sly, you might find some still burning thus saving precious lighter fuel and flint also.
