Interactive Tool: How Much Is Smoking Costing You
What does this tool measure?
Click here to find out how much smoking is costing you.
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.
Perhaps 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 about.
