Cost of Smoking

HEALTH TOOL: THE TRUE COST OF SMOKING

This health tool calculates how much it had been costing you on cigarettes and what you could save over your lifetime by stopping smoking now.

This health tool calculates how much it had been costing you on cigarettes and what you could save over your lifetime by stopping smoking now.

Please note that this tool does not include a rise in the cost of cigarettes when calculating future costs; the actual amount you spend will be higher.

While you may be surprised at the amount of money you spent on cigarettes over a period of time, smoking costs will be higher, given the cost of smoking-related illnesses, including treatment costs and missed work or school days. The more cigarettes you smoke, the longer you smoke, the more medical expenses associated with smoking-related problems such as lung cancer, heart disease, or emphysema.

Do bear in mind that the tool cannot calculate things that are not measured in money. People will eventually pay the price because of smoking. It may also affect the people you care about.

Calculation formula: (Average number of cigarettes smoked per day / Number of cigarettes in a pack) X (Cost for a pack) X 365 X (Total number of years the person has smoked or intends to smoke).
