It's not easy to quit smoking. Over 20 percent of Americans still smoke, and nearly 75 percent of smokers are considered highly dependent on nicotine. Kicking the habit for good requires a clear action plan and support from family and friends.

But where you live may also play a role in how easy or difficult it is to quit. The American Lung Association examined access to tobacco cessation treatments in each state to determine how "quit-friendly" each state is in its new report, "Helping Smokers Quit: Tobacco Cessation Coverage 2011."
