Whether you are a smoker or not, we have all heard people complain about the ridiculous price of cigarettes and how quickly they add up weekly, monthly and annually. But just how ridiculous are these prices you wonder? Take a look below, as we have broken down the math for you.
These calculations are based on the average cost of $10.80 per pack. If you buy a pack a day for a week you would spend $75.60, an amount you could spend on a date for two at a nice restaurant! If you buy two packs a day for five years you would be spending $39,420.00, that’s more than some people make in a year! If you smoke half a pack for 30 years you would be spending $59,130.00, that’s enough to buy you a nice new car! But the number that is most shocking is smoking two packs a day for 40 years would cost $315,360.00, you could put a nice down payment on a beautiful house or travel the world. If these numbers do not give you a reason to quit smoking, I do not know what will!
