USA: Cigarette Smoking is Down!

By Staff Reporters



Cigarette smoking hits a record low in the USA

Just 1 in 9 Americans smoked cigarettes last year, a record low, according to the CDC. Compared to the 1960s, when 42% of US adults smoked cigarettes, it’s a dramatic drop that reflects greater awareness of the health risks of smoking, and economic hurdles like cigarette taxes.


But Americans haven’t given up their nicotine addiction entirely. Vaping rose to almost 6% last year, and 14% of teens reported using e-cigarettes in another CDC study.
