Help for new long lasting lens

I'm looking to buy a new lens. When i bought my K-X off of craigslist, it came with 18-55 and 50-200 DA Ls.... I traded my 18-55mm for a 50mm prime f/2 lens.

Now, i think i'm ready to buy a new lens. I would like a lens that is closer than a 50, so i would go for 18mm for start. and max zoom is any...

I'm looking at these two,

Tamron AF 18-250mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II LD Lens Reviews - Pentax Third-Party Lens Review Database

SMC Pentax-DA 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 ED AL [IF] Lens Reviews - Pentax Lens Review Database

I'm wondering what the difference between them is. Which one is better...

If you know of a better lens than these 2, that i dont know of, please let me know.

I'm just getting tired of switching lenses from time to time, and i know its bad so i need this ASAP. Please help!

I'm not sure I understand these sentences...

Regarding the two lenses you mention, they are exactly, completely, the same lens. Go with either one.

Both of the lenses are identical and will do a great job.
