Need another reason not to use tobacco? Here’s the bottom line:

$5.00 (Average price per pack with taxes) X 7 days= $35 a week

$35 a week X 52 weeks in the year= $1,820 a year


(This doesn’t account for lighters, gum, scents, etc. that many smokers keep on hand to support their habit.)

$3 (average price per can with taxes) X 365 days in the year= $1,095

(This doesn’t account for gum, mints, mouthwash, etc. that a user of spit tobacco keeps on hand to support their habit.)

Think about the money spent on tobacco for the year, then think about what you would do with this amount of money as a reward for yourself (even if you’re not a user).
