## How does this smoking calculator work?

All you have to do is enter the cost of a pack of cigarettes, the number you are smoking daily, the moment you had started smoking and whether you stopped or not.

This smoking calculator estimates:

• The daily smoking cost by dividing the number of cigarettes you smoke to 20. Then it multiplies the number that results to the cost of a pack of cigarettes;
• The weekly smoking cost by multiplying the daily smoking cost with 7 days;
• The monthly smoking cost by multiplying the daily smoking cost with 30 days;
• The yearly smoking cost by multiplying the daily smoking cost with 365 days;
• Total smoking cost to date by making the difference(expressed in days) between the start date and end date/current date and then by multiplying it to the daily smoking cost;
• Total cigarettes smoked by finding the number of days you were smoking from start date until end date/current date and then by multiplying it with the number of cigarettes you smoke per day;
• The cost if you continue smoking for another 1 years by adding to the total smoking cost to date the cost of another one year;
• The cost if you continue smoking for another 3 years by adding to the total smoking cost to date the cost of another 3 years;
• The cost if you continue smoking for another 5 years by adding to the total smoking cost to date the cost of another 5 years;
• The cost if you continue smoking for another 10 years by adding to the total smoking cost to date the cost of another 10 years.
