Ending Cigarette Use By Adults In A Generation Is Possible, The Views Of 120 Leaders In Tobacco Control

Ending Cigarette Use By Adults In A Generation Is Possible, The Views Of 120 Leaders In Tobacco Control
A new report by Michael Terry, John Seffrin, Ph.D., K. Michael Cummings, Ph.D., Allan Erickson, and Donald Shopland;


Each year, cigarette smoking directly kills 480,000 Americans. It also harms many millions more through secondary effects. The economic toll is enormous and costly, with an annual medical bill of over $170 billion. Yet, the public and media's focus has largely shifted to other health issues. Mainstream tobacco control largely centers on measures to slow youth uptake, which will yield mortality and health gains, but will only reach its full impact 50 years from now.

There is an urgent need to accelerate progress to end cigarette smoking in adults. That requires fully implementing historically-validated tobacco control measures especially tobacco taxes and integrating new science-based reduced-risk products into tobacco control. Simultaneously, we need to pursue a long-term approach to nicotine that is coherent with, and proportionate to, the risks associated with other public health measures required to address psychoactive substances. We consulted 120 key tobacco control leaders across the United States (U.S.). They represent a broad swath of tobacco control experience and expertise, ranging from researchers and academics, to advocates, state and urban tobacco control staff, government officials, and local front-line workers. Their input is integrated into a proposed strategy to achieve the goal of reducing cigarette smoking in adults to less than 10 percent in all communities nationwide by 2024. This is not a consensus report. We considered all inputs, and focus here on what represents the needed balance between what has worked to reduce smoking in the U.S., and additional steps that are now needed. These steps draw upon advances in technology and deeper insights into what drives behavior change.

Three (3) specific actions are proposed for immediate, accelerated implementation:

Action 1:

Increase excise taxes at the federal level and in many states with four (4) goals: lower smoking rates, harmonize taxes across state borders to reduce illicit trade, cover the costs of smoking-related disease, and encourage a shift from cigarettes to reduced-risk products and complete cessation. 9

Action 2:

Encourage health and life insurers, employers, and health professionals to actively promote smoking cessation measures supported by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and the 2014 U.S. Surgeon General's Report.

Action 3:

Establish a more rational tobacco, nicotine, and alternative products regulatory framework based on their relative risks, and that is adaptable to the increased speed of innovation in new technology development. These three (3) actions need to be underpinned by heightened lay and professional media advocacy for adult tobacco cessation. It also must include continued support for expanded voluntary and legislated ways of providing smoke-free areas to all. Each of the actions should address social class, race, geographic, and other correlates of cigarette smoking-related inequalities.
