Back to Smoking Cessation.

* Asked only of respondents who reported smoking 100 cigarettes in their entire lifetime and now smoke not at all (for any length of time).

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
