Smoking - the killer facts

Over half of all addicted smokers will die from their addiction.Things are getting better for stopping smoking, in 1972, just under half of all adults in the UK smoked. Now, in 2014, that has fallen to just over a quarter.

Over 25% of all smokers in the UK started as under aged smokers whilst they were teenagers.

If a woman smokes during pregnancy, her child will have a much higher chance of being disabled than a child with non smoking parents. Also there is an extremely high chance of that child being an addicted smoker in later life.
