A State Health Department survey indicates many Missouri smokers want to quit the habit, but don’t take advantage of the help available. Less than a week intothe new year, some Missourians who vowed to kick the smoking habit are still lighting up, while others have given up on efforts to quit. Janet Wilson with the State Health Department points to a new survey showing fewer than one in ten Missourians who try to quit takes advantage of smoking cessation aids like nicotine patches or gum. And, quitting cold turkey is very tough. Wilson says anyone who’s concerned about the cost of these aids should, instead, consider the cost of the cigarettes. The survey indicates almost half of all Missouri smokers have tried to quit in the past. More than six in ten want to quit sometime in the next six months.
