Is NRT gum cheaper than smoking?

The cost of a 12 week programme of NRT gum appears infinitesimal when you compare it with the cost of continued smoking, both in terms of the money spent on cigarettes and the cost to your health over time. If you stop smoking you are obviously saving all of the money that you used to spend on cigarettes. Should you damage your health to the point where surgery or other expensive medical procedures become unavoidable then you will certainly be able to appreciate the true cost of your smoking habit.
