This year's theme is 'swap fags for swag' - urging smokers to focus not only on the many benefits to their health and wellbeing, but also on the extra cash they could have to spend on whatever they like if they manage to give up.

To calculate how much you spend on cigarettes - and get an idea of the sort of treats you could afford if you managed to kick the habit - why not take advantage of the 'fags for swag' calculator at the bottom of this page?

You can also contact the team on, on their free helpline 0800 052 5855 or by texting 'QUIT' to 80800.
