50.6 Million U.S. Adults Currently Use Tobacco Products

Atlanta, GA...Findings from a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report released today show that approximately 1 in 5 U.S. adults reported currently using a tobacco product in 2019, with about 80% of those adults reporting that they use combustible products such as cigarettes.





To assess recent national estimates of tobacco product use among U.S. adults 18 years or older, CDC analyzed data from the 2019 National Health Interview Survey. The survey measured use of five tobacco products: cigarettes, cigars (cigars, cigarillos, or filtered little cigars), pipes (regular pipes, water pipes, or hookahs), e-cigarettes, and smokeless tobacco (chewing tobacco, snuff, dip, snus, or dissolvable tobacco).

Currently, most tobacco-related death and disease in the United States are primarily caused by cigarettes and other combustible products. Yet, no form of tobacco product use is risk-free.

“The battle against tobacco use in this country is far from over,” said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, MD. “Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States.”

Cigarettes still the most commonly used product; tobacco landscape continues to evolve

The study found that an estimated 50.6 million (20.8%) U.S. adults currently used a tobacco product in 2019. Most current tobacco product users (80.5%) reported using combustible products (cigarettes, cigars, or pipes), and cigarettes remained the most commonly used tobacco product (14.0%), followed by e-cigarettes (4.5%). E-cigarette use was highest among adults 18-24 years old (9.3%), with more than half (56.0%) of these young adults reporting that they had never smoked cigarettes.

U.S. adults reported using various non-cigarette tobacco products, with e-cigarettes being the second most commonly used tobacco product (4.5%), followed by cigars (3.6%), smokeless tobacco (2.4%), and pipes (1.0%). Among adults who currently use tobacco products, 18.6% reported using two or more tobacco products.

Disparities in tobacco product use

“Findings from this study show that disparities in tobacco product use continue to persist,” said Karen Hacker, MD, MPH, Director of CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. “There is still much more that needs to be done to protect everyone from the harmful effects of tobacco use.”

By subpopulation groups, current use of any tobacco product in 2019 was highest among:

Males (26.2%)
Adults 25-44 years old (25.3%)
Non-Hispanic American Indian/Alaska Natives (29.3%)
Lesbian, gay, or bisexual adults (29.9%)
Adults 25 years old or older with a General Educational Development certificate (GED) (43.7%)
Adults with an annual household income less than $35,000 (27.0%)
Adults living in the Midwest (23.7%) or the South (22.9%)
Uninsured adults (30.2%) or those with Medicaid (30.0%)
Adults with a disability (26.9%)
Adults divorced, separated or widowed (23.5%), or adults who were single, never married, or not living with a partner (23.0%.)
Adults with mild (30.4%), moderate (34.2%), or severe generalized anxiety disorder (45.3%)
What more can be done?

The implementation of comprehensive, evidence-based, population-level interventions, in coordination with regulation of tobacco products, can reduce the burden of tobacco-related disease and death in the United States. These evidence-based, population-level strategies include implementation of tobacco price increases, comprehensive smoke-free policies, high-impact antitobacco media campaigns, and barrier-free cessation coverage. As part of a comprehensive approach, targeted interventions also are warranted to reach subpopulations with the greatest burden of use, which might vary by tobacco product type.

For support to quit tobacco product use, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW or visit www.cdc.gov/quit for resources from CDC’s Tips From Former Smokers® campaign.

All of you Hillbillies just keep smoking those cigarettes and you will find that you can erase at least 20 years off your life and cost the health care system millions of dollars which is paid for by Americans.

      Pense Tobacco Road
      Posted on: 2020-11-19 19:09:03   By: Anonymous
       
      Pense was a shill for big tobacco. His chain of convenience stores "tobacco Road" sold gas and other products especially cigarettes.
      Pence many times defended the tobacco industry, he denied tobacco caused health problems, especially lung cancer. He made $ off selling a killer product.
      How he denies Covid is anymore than just the flu.
      This "Christian" is a typical Republican death party killer.

        We are on the way to legalizing all drugs, why are we still so worried about cigarettes? It is ok to be fat and obese, all ad campaigns have what they call comfortable and beautiful with their own bodies models. The suicide pill is the only answer for when the suffering of our choices become too great. The pill will end the misery and save society costs.

          Sounds like if one has two shots of brandy before bed he’s an alcoholic and will die from liver failure. Like eating food, moderation should be a priority. Maybe pay attention to what we are putting in our body. To simple.

      Want to involve politics, obama admits in his new book, he had a hiding place in the whitehouse and smoked about nine cigarettes per day! I think he’s Democrat. Just guessing.

    Not proud to say but I smoke about 10/day. Tried everything to quit, next step group support. Worked 55 years and at 70 I’m in excellent health. Never cost my insurance carrier one penny! Yes, it can reduce life expectancy about 8 years. I’ve got improvements to make. I want every year I can get! Still physically active and at $10/pac, no brainer....

      You're the exception. Don't know where you got your eight year figure from but any medical professional can tell you it can take decades off your life. My own dad smoked a couple of packs a day in his early adulthood, quit at 40 but developed full stage 4 lung cancer at 80 that did not respond to treatment. He was fit and active his whole life, hardly saw a doctor except for the occasional physical, didn't even retire till 70 but that last year of life... all I can say is good thing my parents had insurance.

        That is a long life for men in America with 78 being the average.

      Use the patch and stay on it longer than recommended on the box. Take the time you need. It's expensive but less so than you're spending now. I tried ten plus years to quit but when I told myself I could have just that one after my morning coffee or a drink at the end of the day, I was back in no time to a pack a day. The patch worked for me and happy to say, it's been 15 years now.

    Maybe so? Or maybe they are just the honest ones, that would be my guess.
