Over 700 lung cancer patients were surveyed at diagnosis and a mean of 54 months later regarding smoking status. 56% of those smoking at the time of diagnosis and stopped smoking 1 year later. Smoking cessation was adversely affected by second hand smoke exposure from housemates, spouses, and peers; these effects were cumulative.
