Gallup researchers have found that only 12 percent of smokers have never tried to quit the habit, according to a blog in the Huffington Post.
Forty percent have tried to quit once or twice in their lives, 41 percent have tried to quit three to 10 times, and 4 percent have tried to quit more than 10 times.
The researchers noted in their report findings that the survey results suggested “smokers on average are engaging in a habit they wish they didn’t have; and, in fact, the average smoker has attempted to quit at least three times in their lifetime.”
The survey, which included phone interviews with 2,027 adults in the U.S. last month, revealed also that three out of four smokers would like to quit.
