Seniors and smoking

Did you know about 10% of adults over the age of 65 continue to smoke tobacco on a daily or occasional basis?

The good news is that it is never too late to quit smoking. While older adults are less likely to try quitting than younger people, they are actually more likely to be successful at quitting. Even older adults already experiencing chronic diseases or cancer benefit greatly from tobacco cessation in disease management. Want to know more?
