Good job with your corrections! Here are a few suggestions to further improve the sentences:

5. A few wise smokers eventually kick the habit, but many are never able to quit.
12. Elmo plays that song much better on the kazoo than he does on the flute.

In sentence 5, "smarten up" is replaced with "quit" to make the sentence clearer.

In sentence 12, "better" is followed by "he does" to complete the comparison.
