How Smoking Cigarettes Negatively Affects the Other Parts of Your Life
Drains the Bank
Smoking cigarettes is an expensive bad habit and addiction. Based on data from Fair Reporters, each pack of smokes costs $5.51 on average with the highest cost-per-pack at $12.85 for New Yorkers. Since each pack contains 20 individual cigarettes, people in New York are paying roughly 63 cents for each one.
Furthermore, if you’re smoking a pack each day, or even three packs a week, you’re investing a lot of your extra income into killing yourself. At an average cost of $5.51, a pack a day habit will cost you $2011.15 each year. Smoke a pack a day for 5 years, your expenses total more than 10 grand. Think about it!
Hurts Your Social Life
Cigarette smoke stinks. It sinks into your hair, clothes, car, and more. People don’t like to be around others who smell like ashtrays and cigarette butts. So, you might find yourself being left out in the rain more often than not. Furthermore, most large cities have smoking bans in place. You’ll have to isolate yourself from the good times each time you need to go out for a smoke.
