Social media could help smokers kick the habit.
More than 400,000 Americans die each year because of smoking yet research shows it's one of the most difficult addictions to quit.
A new study found smokers who were part of quitting-related social websites were more likely to quit than those who didn't visit these sites. They also stayed smoke-free for a longer period of time.
Researchers say these sites build a sense of community where people can build relationships and get support from those with similar health issues.
