Older Americans kicking the habit may be a reason for a decline in the number of people over 65 living with chronic disabilities.
The national long-term care survey finds only 21 percent of older Americans suffer with a disability that impairs daily activity.
In 1982 about one in four older Americans had a chronic disability.
This improvement is attributed to better medications and lifestyle changes such as activity and quitting smoking.
