Interactive Tool: How Much Is Smoking Costing You? - What does this tool measure?
This interactive tool calculates how much money you have spent on
cigarettes in the past or how much you will spend on them in the future. When
computing future costs, this calculator does not take into account inflation or
the rising cost of cigarettes or the taxes on them. The actual amount you spend
will be higher.
Although you may be surprised at how much you
spend on cigarettes over a period of time, smoking costs even more when you
consider illnesses caused by smoking. The more cigarettes you smoke and the
longer you smoke, the more costs will add up from smoking-related medical
problems such as lung cancer, heart disease, or emphysema.
most importantly, this tool can't calculate the costs that aren't measured in
dollars. Smoking will eventually cost you time and will take a toll on your
quality of life. And it will likely have an impact on the people you care
