Reasons For Quitting...

Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States.  Over 11,000 Georgians die every year from tobacco-related illness.  That is one out of every six deaths in adult Georgians.  In DeKalb, there is an estimated 67, 223 adult smokers. 

 

Of those, 13% are Non-Hispanic Whites, 19% non-Hispanic Blacks and 15% others. In addition, 13% of DeKalb’s high school students use tobacco and 34% have ever tried smoking a cigarette, according to the 2010 Youth Risk Behavior Survey.  pdf logo
