In Depth: How Much You'll Save By Quitting Smoking

Smoking is getting more and more expensive--especially if you live Delaware, where residents spend $998.23 on cigarettes every year, more than in any other state. Even in Utah, the state that spends the least on smoking, you'd still save $150.85 per year by quitting.

Using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Campaign for Tobacco-free Kids, Forbes.com compiled the state taxes on a pack of cigarettes and the average price of a pack in each state. We then used the per-capita packs bought in 2007, as calculated by the CDC, to approximate how much the average smoker spends per year on cigarettes.
