The average cost per smoker in Massachusetts each year is $43,319, according to a new report from the data experts at Wallethub.

The report – The Real Cost of Smoking by State – shows that smokers in Massachusetts pay the second most in the United States (only behind New York) for cigarettes and tobacco products per year and over the course of a lifetime — which totals more than $2.2 million.

Wallethub calculated the potential monetary losses — including both the lifetime and annual cost of a cigarette pack per day, health care expenditures, income losses and other costs — brought on by smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke.
