Why Quit?

  • Cigarette smoking is responsible for about one in five deaths in the U.S. (more than 440,000 deaths per year).
  • An estimated 49,000 deaths and more than $10 billion in health care expenditures in the U.S. each year are the result of secondhand smoke exposure.
  • In the United States, cigarette smoking costs more than $193 billion annually.
  • On average, smokers die 10 years earlier than nonsmokers.
