CDC: Cigarette smoking at all-time low
Cigarette smoking dropped to a nationwide low last year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Only 11% of adults say they smoked cigarettes last year – down from 12.5% in 2021.
However, e-cigarette use jumped to nearly 6%, from about 4.5% the year before.
The rate of cigarette smoking has dropped for decades because of factors like higher prices and smoking bans, the study found.
