Campaign to help people quit smoking
On Monday 8 February, a candid and heart wrenching advert about how smoking causes early death was broadcast to Somerset homes.
We all know smoking kills but somehow we think it will kill ‘other people’, not us.
The stark truth is that smoking will kill one in two smokers, often after years of disability and much earlier than expected.
Smoking still remains the biggest cause of premature death in England, accounting for 80,000 deaths a year with half of all long-term smokers dying early from a smoking related disease.
The campaign urges smokers to be there tomorrow for their family and loved ones and runs from 8 February to 31 March 2016.
