How The Smoking Calculator Works
This calculator takes the number of years you smoked, average number of cigarettes you smoked a day, and the current price for a pack of cigarettes and delivers a few figures:
- Number of cigarettes you smoked in that period.
- How much all those cigarettes would cost today.
- How much the tobacco in those cigarettes weighed (based on 0.68 grams per cigarette).
The results can be pretty surprising. I smoked around 3/4 of a pack a day for 23 years. That turned out to be over 126,000 cigarettes, costing more than $37,000 and with tobacco weighing in at over 188 pounds. I smoked a grown man’s weight in tobacco.
