Smoking Cessation: A Report Of The Surgeon General

Most of the 34 million adult Americans who smoke cigarettes want to quit. But smoking will remain the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the U.S. unless more is done to help them quit. In his new report, Smoking Cessation: A Report of the Surgeon General, VADM Dr. Jerome M. Adams calls on everyone, including healthcare professionals, health systems, employers, insurers, public health professionals, and policy makers, to take action to put an end to the staggering—and completely preventable—human and financial tolls that smoking takes on our country. 

This is the first Surgeon General’s report since 1990 to focus solely on smoking cessation. The following materials provide an overview of the report, key findings, and answers to questions that you or others might have about the report:
