Westchester Residents Less Likely to Smoke
Among the first to ban smoking in restaurants, citizens are six percent less likely to be smokers.
We Kicked the Habit
In our annual Top Doctors issue back in November, we applauded Westchester for being less cigarette-addicted than the rest of the country. It bears repeating. Only 12 percent of us still smoke, which is less than both the New York Stage average (18 percent) and the national average (19 percent). Westchester also banned smoking in restaurants before New York City and most of the rest of the country. So, even if the rest of the United States reads this and doesn’t believe Westchester is a better place to live, at least they know its residents are far more pleasant to kiss.
