"Smoke 'em if ya got 'em", right? Well the growing problem with that is that fewer of us are smoking. In fact, one of my favorite past time habits is well on its way to being extinct!
According to the CDC, the number of Americans who smoke cigarettes just hit an all-time low.
Around 14% of adults now smoke every day or some days. That's down from 15.5% two years ago . . . and it's down 67% since 1965.
Now . . . we still have a way to go. Cigarette smoking is still the top preventable cause of death in the country, killing about 480,000 people a year. But the latest numbers show we're definitely moving in the right direction.
