The health costs of smoking are well known, the links to disease and death have been established beyond all doubt by decades of scientific research and epidemiological data. Now, the personal finance website WalletHub.com has done a thorough analysis of the potential financial impact of smoking on individual, pack-a-day smokers in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The bad news is, New Jersey ranks within the top ten states with the highest total annual and lifetime smoking costs in the United States. Although there are more expensive states, smokers still burn away over two million dollars over their lifetimes. So, the next time you see someone stepping outside for a smoke break, picture them burning cash instead of tobacco.
