A new study by WalletHub measured the costs — financially, not physically — of maintaining that nicotine addiction.

WalletHub calculated the costs of smoking a pack a day (factoring in current pricing as well as historical pricing), health care costs, income losses, and other costs associated with smoking and with secondhand smoke. The study does not factor in e-cigarette use.
