Here's yet another reason to kick the habit. If you stop smoking, you could be a millionaire — well, over the course of your lifetime at least. That's because smoking can cost Americans up to $2 million in a lifetime.
WalletHub published the findings and calculated tobacco cost, health care cost, income loss and other costs per smoker to get the final numbers.
South Carolina rang in with the lowest cost at just under $1.1 million while Alaska recorded the highest at more than $2.0 million. The state-by-state average sat around $1.4 million.
