Smoking cigarettes can be expensive because cigarette prices keep climbing ridiculously (a single cigarette will cost you approximately $2). If you switch over to vaping, you can save more than $8000 per year. Smoking cigarettes can cost you 10 times more than vaping.
The cheapest option is to not smoke or vape.
