Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable death in Colorado and is a major driver of health care costs. More than 80 percent of adult tobacco users start when they are young and carry their nicotine addiction into adulthood. Tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke can lead to chronic diseases that include lung diseases, cancer, heart disease and stroke. However, when people who smoke quit for good, their health begins to improve immediately.

Here you can view state and regional-level data on:
  • Percentage of adults who are current smokers
  • Percent of 9th-12th graders who are current smokers
  • Percentage of children who live with a smoker in the home and are exposed to secondhand smoke
