England has its lowest smoking rates on record


Public Health England (PHE) has said that smoking rates in England are the lowest they have ever been.

Just 16.9% of adults described themselves as smokers in 2015 compared to 19.3% in 2012. Experts have publically stated that the dramatic decrease is partly in thanks to the availability of e-cigarettes.

Over the last four years, prescriptions for smoking cessation aids such as nicotine patches and gum have dropped, with the NHS dishing out two million in 2004 compared to 1.3 million in 2014.

During the four years sales of e-cigarettes have increased, showing the dramatic effect of vaping in England.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Gina Radford said: The best thing a smoker can do for their health is to stop smoking. There is more help and support available now than ever before.

These figures have been released by PHE as part of the ‘Stoptober’ campaign, which encourages smokers to quit during October.
