Description

For everyday smokers who responded that they had tried to stop smoking to quit completely, TSTOPDUR reports the duration of the longest time they were able to stop smoking, measured in days. In the original survey, the respondent reports a unit of time (days, weeks, months) and a number. To construct TSTOPDUR, the reported value was converted to days by multiplying weeks by 7, months by 30, and years by 365.

This variable is part of the Tobacco Use Supplement.
