Kicking smoking habits may be harder for younger smokers.
That is according to a report from the centers for disease control and prevention.
The report could provide some insight into why young adult smokers are more likely to be unsuccessful in their attempts to quit.
More than 88% of young smokers tried to quit by cutting back on the number of cigarettes smoked in a day.
56% tried to quit by simply not buying cigarettes.
Neither method is recommended by the US Public Health Service.
Few young smokers tried the recommended methods such as using nicotine replacement products or talking to a health professional.
