Famous People tobacco has taken from us
The cost of a pack of cigarettes averages around $4.50 to $5, including taxes, depending on where you live. Using the lower number, a pack-a-day smoker burns through about $31.50 per week, or $1,638 per year. That's a fat house payment or a nice vacation with the family. A 40-year-old who quits smoking and puts the savings into a 401(k) earning 9% a year would have nearly $250,000 by age 70.
Of all smoking related deaths an estimated 10% are people who die of disease due to secondhand smoke.
 
Secondhand smoke can also irritate the lungs, leading to coughing, excessive phlegm, wheezing and breathlessness.
 
Secondhand smoke causes irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.
 
Secondhand smoke causes about 3,400 deaths each year from lung cancer in non-smokers.
 
Secondhand smoke has been estimated to cause 46,000 (ranging from 22,700 to 69,600) deaths per year from heart disease in adult nonsmokers.
Those were just statistics and cannot show the emotional pain and suffering one must endure watching a loved one waste away from somthing that could have been prevented or being that sick person that must say goodbye to the ones they love. 
I hope some of these stories will put things into perspective

The one place many smokers feel free and comfortable to light up is in their car. Without consistent and thorough cleanings, however, a car that is smoked in will soon start to resemble an ashtray on wheels. The interior inevitably smells like smoke, and stray ashes and butts can burn holes in the upholstery and floor mats.  None of these things has much financial impact until you try to sell the car. Figure a minimum of $150 for a good cleaning with an extractor.

Secondhand Smoke Especially Hurts Children!

Children who breathe secondhand smoke are more likely to suffer from pneumonia, bronchitis, and other lung diseases.

Children who breathe secondhand smoke have more ear infections.

Children who have asthma and who breathe secondhand smoke have more asthma attacks.

There are an estimated 790,000 visits to health care providers for ear infections and over 202,000 asthma attacks in children with asthma caused by secondhand smoke exposure.

Pregnancy and Babies
In U.S. alone, figures show that expectant mothers who smoke cause the deaths of over 600 boy babies and 400 baby girls each year. Babies who survive but suffer from smoking related problems cost the country approximately $800 each to help, totaling nearly $4 million.

What Tobacco Does To Your Family And Friends:
"No one should have to lose a loved one to cigarette's"
Babies whose mothers smoke while they are pregnant or who are exposed to secondhand smoke after birth are at a greater risk for SIDS (Suden Infant Death Syndrome).
For every packet of cigarettes smoked, add US$8.00 that society pays for medical and lost productivity costs. Thus the economic costs of smoking total approximately $3780 per smoker per year. This equates to over $160 billion in smoking health-related costs.
But only you know exactly how much you pay and how often.
