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 York state smokers have the second highest total annual and lifetime costs in the United States. Only Connecticut smokers have higher total costs. So, the next time you see someone puffing away outside of a Manhattan restaurant or office buildings, picture them burning cash instead of tobacco.
