CDC says more adults quitting smoking

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and prevention says that more adults are putting down their cigarettes for good.

According to the CDC, a graphic and controversial anti-smoking campaign could be part of the reason smokers are quitting.

The percentage of smokers in the United States dropped to 18 percent last year, which is one percent more than the year before.
