Cigarette smoking rates rose for the first time in nearly 15 years. 21 % of US adults say thry are smokers. Last year there were only 19.8% of people who said they were smokers. What do you think is to blame for the rise?

The economic recession and the attendant job losses for one thing! Well, smoking is an additional burden, and an invitation to health problems for sure. But stress is sometimes more overwhelming than the prospect of an additional expense in low income times.
