Ex-Smokers Come Clean in New CDC Campaign

Atlanta -- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched a new ad campaign Tuesday seeking to scare people off smoking by highlighting true stories about its ravages.

At the same time CDC released now estimates showing 21.3 percent of U.S. adults used a tobacco product every day or some days, 19 smoke daily and 0.5 percent use e-cigarettes.

The CDC estimated its last round of ads, in 2012, helped 100,000 people kick the habit. Terrie Hall, who starred in them, died last September at 53.
