How Much Money Do You Waste by Smoking?

How much money are you wasting every day by smoking cigarettes? According to this “cost of smoking calculator” from the American Cancer Society, you could save anywhere from $16,000 to $36,000 per 10 years. With cigarettes costing anywhere from $5 to $10 or more per pack, it’s just not worth it.

And when you consider the likelihood of medical expenses further down the road for disease and other conditions caused by smoking, those numbers go way up.

If you quit now, your bank account could be $36k larger in 10 years. You could buy a new car with that money. Or you could continue smoking and end up with lung cancer or some other smoking-related disease.

10 years goes by faster than you might expect. And on your 10 year anniversary of quitting smoking you won’t believe how much better you feel and how fast those ten years flew by. You’ll also be adding many more years to your life which will give you more time to save even more money!
