Don't know how someone can scientifically make that assertion.
Since the recidivism of smokers who try to quit is upwards of 90%, it would seem counterintuitive to assign an event as THE REASON x, y, or z amounts of people resumed the habit.
Phone, or 'nose counting' surveys are consistently non scientific (ask Mitt Romney...).
Just because someone writes an article doesn't make it true.
