    American Lung Association Resources Offer Support to Help Americans Quit Smoking in 2010 WASHINGTON, D.C., February 25, 2010 - Every year, millions of Americans faithfully make New Year's resolutions including quitting smoking. However, a recent survey with more than 1,000 former smokers conducted on behalf of the American Lung Association showed that 60 percent of people were not able to quit smoking on their first try and required multiple attempts to quit smoking. Helping more Americans quit smoking remains a top public health priority for the American Lung Association. A new smoking cessation campaign from the Association is available to the many smokers who may have given up on their resolution and provides resources and support for the "Quitter in You." The survey also showed that the main reasons a smoker decides to quit are because of the costs of smoking (35 percent), and to improve their health (33 percent).
