With the extension of their “Tips From Former Smokers” campaign launching Monday, the Center of Disease Control (CDC) is back at it again attempting to persuade smokers to drop their unhealthy habit. According to the CDC, as a result of the “Tips From Former Smokers” campaign which launched in 2012:
- An estimated 1.64 million Americans tried to quit smoking.
- At least 100,000 smokers who tried to quit are expected to stay quit.
- An estimated 6 million nonsmokers talked with friends and family about the dangers of smoking.
- An estimated 4.7 million additional nonsmokers recommended quit services to their friends and family.
