quitting smoking: QUIT ATTEMPTS

Quit Attempts by Age

Quit attempts varied significantly by age group in 2013(59). More young smokers had made a quit attempt in the past year, and quit attempts appeared to decrease with age (Figure 6.17).

This pattern was consistent over time; more young smokers made a quit attempt in all years since 1999 (Figure 6.18). Although the percentages of each age group who made a quit attempt varied from year-to-year, there were no clear patterns of change over the last decade, except for a potential decrease over time among those under 25.
