In 2000, 23.3% of adults in the United States were current smokers and approximately 70% of them reported the desire to quit smoking completely. Among the estimated 42.4% ever-smokers, 50.6% were former smokers ( Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2002). In other words, about one-half of U.S. ever-smokers become nonsmokers during their lives (Hughes, Keely, & Naud, 2004).
