Quit Attempts

In 2013, half (49.6%) of smokers and recent quitters had made at least one quit attempt in the past year, and more than one third had made multiple attempts (Figure 6.13).

There was no significant change between 2012 and 2013 in the percentage of smokers and recent quitters who had attempted to quit in the past 12 months(57).

From 1999 to 2013, the percentage of smokers and recent quitters who had attempted to quit in the past 12 months appears to have remained stable, at around half (Figure 6.14).
