Calling All Smokers. A Dream Ticket For Two To Paradise Island - For All Of You! - Articles Surfing
Sorry to remind all you died in the wool smokers but November was Lung Cancer Awareness month. But no don't click away * spare a few moments of your time, please **..
If hard words on packets wash over you, let me put the financial case to you for quitting. As well as feeling healthier I can offer you a holiday for two on Paradise Island in the Maldives, for two, for every year of your longer life!!
OK, I know you don't believe me. Let's explain.
Say the average smoker is 40 and smokes 20 a day. With cigarettes at *5 a packet that's *1,800 a year. Then you'll save loads on the cost of your your life, critical illness and medical insurance. Just how much was highlighted in a recent snapshot study by www.express-life-insurance.co.uk. This found that the average smoker paid 56% more for life insurance than a non-smoker. Therefore, giving up could easily save you *50 per month on your various insurance premiums.
So as a non-smoker you could be *2,400 per year better off. Wearing a financial hat I can show you that if a 40 year old man put those savings into a personal pension plan with NFU, then at 5% per annum growth, he'll have a healthy retirement fund of *97,860. On retirement that could give an in the pocket tax-free sum of *24,465, plus an annual lifetime income of *3,830 (or *5,100 per year if the tax-free cash was left in the pension).
On the other hand let's have more fun!
For *2,400 you can have a 5 star 10 day holiday for two on Paradise Island in the Maldives. Give up smoking forever and you could afford to go back to Paradise Island every year!
QED * makes you think doesn't it?
