LA Times: Even cancer isn't enough to get many smokers to quit, study finds

This article for the LA 
Times by Karen Kaplan 
observes that almost 10% 
of cancer survivors still 
smoke even after their 
battle with the disease. 
Startling information here
about just how bad this 
addiction really is...
(Side note: Even after my 
sixth close family member 
died from smoking, it still 
took me three more years 
to quit. Three of the six 
continued to smoke after 
they were diagnosed. 
Three of them had quit 
some years before.)
