Most Smokers Want to Quit, CDC Report Finds
Date:11/11/2011

llege degree were able to quit, compared with 3 percent of those who did not graduate from high school, McAfee said.

In addition, blacks had the highest interest in quitting and the highest quit attempt rate than any other group, but blacks also had the lowest rate of successful quitting, McAfee said. Blacks were also less likely to use medication or counseling, he noted.

In addition, blacks were more likely to smoke menthol cigarettes, which decreases the rate of quitting, McAfee said.

If you can't quit by yourself, the best way to quit is with a combination of counseling and drugs like Zyban, Chantix or other nicotine replacement therapy, the CDC report said.

"Smokers who try to quit can double or triple their chances by getting counseling, medicine or both," CDC director Dr. Thomas R. Frieden said in a statement.

"Other measures of increasing the likelihood that smokers will quit as they want to include hard--hitting media campaigns, 100 percent smoke-free policies, and higher tobacco prices," he added.

The CDC is releasing the report as part of the annual Great American Smokeout on Nov. 17. The event is sponsored by the American Cancer Society, and encourages smokers to make a plan to quit, or quit smoking that day.

The report also notes that the growth of smoke-free workplaces and public places offer smokers another incentive to quit.

In addition, the health care industry can help smoker quit through comprehensive insurance coverage with no deductibles or co-payments for cessation treatments and services.

Smoking is still the leading preventable cause of death and disease, including cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other lung diseases. Each year in the United States, smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke kill some 443,000 people, the report noted.

In addition, for every smoking-related death there are 20 people living with a smoking-related disease, the agency said.
