Drop in adult smoking rate stalls

The recent report was referenced in another recent post. The writer of that post suggested that cold turkey was the answer to cutting smoking rates. That may be part of the solution, but it’s clearly not sufficient:

The proportion of adults who smoke held steady at 20.9 percent in the most recent national survey of cigarette habits, conducted in 2005, marking the first time the rate did not fall from one year to the next since 1997, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta reported.
