Zak smoked since he was 14. He started because his older brother smoked and let him join in with his mates. He started with just the occasional one or two and gradually increased. He ended up smoking a pack of 20 every day. Last year Zak’s smoking habit cost him about £2,873!
Apart from being broke, Zak found he couldn’t keep up at football and dropped out of a team he used to play with on Sunday mornings. He wants to make a change. He’s not ready to stop completely yet but is considering buying an e-cig to help him give up smoking real cigarettes.
