More and more Americans are putting out their cigarettes for good.
In 2015, just 15.1 percent of American adults were smokers, a decline of almost 2 percentage points compared to 2014, according to a report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The last decline that significant was from 1992 to 1993. The smoking rate has declined almost every year since 1997, when almost 25 percent of U.S. adults said they smoked.
