Unhealthy lifestyles, habits, and choices can hurt your wallet, not just your mind and body. But just how much do these things cost? Mint’s latest infographic gives us an idea. Click here or on the image above to see the average annual cost of eating junk food, drinking caffeine, smoking, and other unhealthy activities cost.

As you can see in the infographic, the financial ramifications can really add up. Of course, unhealthy lifestyles can have a cumulative effect on your body, too — which in turn, can lead to more spending. According to the infographic, the average spent on junk food, energy drinks, and soda is over $2,800; a steady diet of these things can lead to diabetes (insulin: $3,600) and/or dental work (root canal: $1,200).

Do you have any unhealthy habits or consistently make unhealthy choices? How much do you think these cost you?
