- Tobacco & Smoking
This year’s National No Smoking Day in the UK focuses on cessation and how to stop smoking, which is particularly relevant following the decision last month that UK workplaces including bars and restaurants will go smoke free form 2007. According to the BBC, a third of London smokers plan to give up when the ban comes into force next year, according to a survey commissioned by the charity No Smoking Day. The survey showed that of 28 million smokers in the UK, 22% said they would give up when the ban came in and a further 53% said they would try to quit the habit when the new laws are introduced.
