You've heard it a million times: Smoking is bad for you. But if the warnings that smoking can lead to lung disease and cancer haven't convinced you to quit, maybe the high cost of your habit will.
The average price of a pack of cigarettes is $6.25, according to the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids. So if you have a pack-a-day habit, you're spending nearly $2,300 a year on cigarettes. Plus, smokers pay $35 for related health costs per pack, according to the American Cancer Society, which adds up to almost $13,000 a year if you smoke a pack a day. Just think what you could do with $13,000 a year.
