Quit intentions by age

 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2013. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.In 2013, the percentages of smokers considering quitting in the next six months and in the next 30 days did not differ significantly by age group55,56 (Figure 6.11). Within each age group, roughly half of those seriously considering quitting in the next six months were also considering quitting in the next 30 days.

Over time, although no clear patterns emerged among younger smokers, the percentage of smokers over 25 seriously considering quitting in the next six months appeared to increase with time, except among the 35-44 age group in the most recent few years (Figure 6.12).
