Total cigarette consumption in the U.S. 1900-2015

Total cigarette consumption in the United States from 1900 to 2015 (in billions)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Dec 9, 2016
Total cigarette consumption in the U.S. 1900-2015 The total number of cigarettes consumed in the United States has decreased over the past few decades. In 2015, around 267 billion cigarettes were consumed, compared to around 632 billion in 1980. This decrease is most likely due to a combination of higher taxes on cigarettes, restrictions on public smoking, and increased awareness of the health risks of smoking.
Health risks of smoking

The negative health impacts of smoking are now widely known and proven. Among men, smokers are 25 times more likely to develop lung cancer than nonsmokers. Smoking also increases the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, and other cancers. Around 47 percent of deaths from oral cavity and pharynx cancers can be attributed to cigarette smoking as well as 45 percent of deaths from urinary bladder cancer.

Quitting

A large percentage of smokers want to quit, with up to 78 percent of those who smoke less than one pack a day wanting to do so. Quitting smoking can be extremely difficult, but there are many ways to assist in breaking the habit. Smoking cessation programs are one of the most popular wellness programs employers provide to employees in the United States.
