Cigarette Smokers In U.S. Reaches An All Time Low

Cigarette smoking in the U.S. has reached an all time low. New date from the U.S. government shows that just 14% of adults overall smoke cigarettes. According to date released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2017, an estimated 34 million adults in the U.S. smoked cigarettes either every day or some days -- which is down from 15.5% in 2016 and 67% fewer than back in 1965. The most dramatic cigarette usage decline was among adults 18 to 24 years -- 10.4% percent in 2017 compared with 13% in 2016. The date was based on 26, 742 adults 18 and older. Total tobacco usage, including cigars, e-cigarettes, hookah/water pipes/pipes and smokeless tobacco, reached 19.3 % -- or 47 million people. Meanwhile, another recent study had bad news for smokers: it takes cigarette smokers' hearts at least 15 year to recover after quitting cigarettes.
