Today is National Kick Butts Day, as in cigarette butts, and if you're looking to quit smoking,or know someone who is, a new survey looked at the top reasons people give it up. Believe it or not, health is NOT #1.

The survey talked to about 850 smokers, and 1,200 ex-smokers. Here are the top five reasons people quit:

  1. Money. A pack a day can cost anywhere from $150 to $300 a month. 43% said it was one of the main reasons they quit.
  2. Health reasons, 30%.
  3. Pressure from family or friends, 23%.
  4. Becoming a parent or grandparent, 20%.
  5. Losing a friend or family member to smoking, 16%.

The survey also found two-thirds of smokers have tried to quit... four times, on average. And the top three reasons they went back to smoking were stress, being around other smokers, and a lack of support.
