>>>Bruce Adkins, director of tobacco prevention for West Virginia's Bureau for Public Health, says the state funds a toll-free line that provides those who want to quit with counseling and nicotine replacement aids. "Our smokers are hardcore, long-term, very addicted pack-a-day smokers," says Adkins. "Quite frankly, they don't want to quit."
Take away "very addicted," and dat quote actually describes me as a smoker. Maybe I oughta move to WV. hee hee
I am surprised Indiana has the 2nd highest smoking rate in the nation. I thought their tobacco taxes were higha than say MO's tobacco taxes.
I dunno where IL ranks, but I'll guess. IL has one of the 20 lowest smoking rates in the nation when I factor in the statewide smoking ban.
