How the Smoking Risk Calculator works?
The Smoking Risk Calculator makes the difference between the two dates you specify (smoking start date and smoking end date) and transforms it into number of days.
Then it multiplies the number of days with the average number of cigarettes that you input and further it multiplies this number with an average of 11/12 minutes. The result is a total number of minutes that are further on transformed if applicable into years, months, weeks, days, hours.
What studies have shown about smoking risks?
Studies have found that each cigarette costs us on average, about 5 to 20 minutes of our lives.
This means that an average smoker dies 7 years earlier than an average non-smoker.
When smoking one cigarette the effect of it is basically insignificant. When you light up the second one the effects start adding along with the number of cigarettes smoked and the results slowly starts to affect your health.
Taking an average of 11 minutes lost due to smoking one cigarette let's make some calculations:
- 1 cigarette = takes 11 minutes
- 10pack = takes almost 2 hours
- 20pack = takes 3 hours and 40 minutes so if you smoke a 20 pack everyday means you lose almost 4 hours off your life every day.
- 200 carton = takes 1 day 12 hours and 40 minutes
I.e. If you smoked a 20pack of cigarettes every day for 25 years this means you lost approximately 3years, 42 weeks, 5 days, 20 hours and 40 minutes off your life.
