Smoking rates falling faster than ever

Monday, 23 September 2019

The latest data from a national smoking study shows that adult smoking rates fell 2.2% from January to July 2019 - equivalent to 200 fewer smokers every hour.

Latest figures from University College London suggest that smoking rates in England are dropping at the fastest rate in over a decade. Not smoking is now the norm in England - but despite smoking rates being lower than ever before, millions still smoke across the country. Stoptober is back to help encourage smokers to make a quit attempt and join those who have already quit this year.
