 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2015. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.In 2015, nearly two-thirds (65.8%) of smokers were seriously considering quitting in the next 6 months (Figure 6.7). Of those, about half (48.2%a) were considering quitting within the next 30 days, which was equivalent to 31.1% of all current smokers.

Between 2013 and 2015, there was no significant change in the percentage of smokers seriously considering quitting, either in the next 6 months51 or in the next 30 days.52

Between 1999 and 2015, the percentage of smokers seriously considering quitting in the next 6 months appears to have increased slightly. Although the pattern of variation over time was similar for the percentage seriously considering quitting in the next 30 days, there was little net change (Figure 6.8).
