I read an article in Medpage Today by Kristina Fiore concerning the percentage of adults (not children) that have quit smoking. The article stated that since 2005 there has been a 1.6% decrease in adults that smoke. That is about 3 million people or, put another way, 1 in 5 adults still smoke. I have strong opinions about this, and I hope that you will also comment on this story and share your opinion.
According to the research, there are benefits to quitting smoking. When I go on interviews I do not smoke prior to the interview, and I do not smoke at work. This is largely due to the prejudices against smokers. There have been many people that have died from cancers and lung diseases that do not smoke, as well as some that do. To me, the quit smoking campaign is another band wagon for followers to jump on. I am not a follower. Indeed, I am a leader.
