Anti-Smoking Campaign: Quit Now

Quit Now, Save Your Lungs, Life, and Wallet Later

The cheapest state to buy cigarettes is West Virginia at a rate of $4.74 per pack and the most expensive is New York at $11.90. It doesn't sound like much, but a pack-a-day smoker spends $1,730.10 to $4,343.50 in a year.

Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the US, taking the lives of 1,200 people a day.

Cigarette companies always market towards the younger generation, so that they can profit from lifetime smokers. Nearly 9 out of 10 smokers start before the age of 18, even though the negative health effects of smoking are felt almost immediately after use begins.

Smoking rates are higher among men, people living below the poverty level, people with less education, and people living in the midwest and south. The more educated people are and the more cultural stigma there is placed around cigarettes, less people in these groups would smoke.

If you want to quit, 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669,TTY 1-800-332-8615),smokefree.gov, and women.smokefree.gov can provide you assistance.
