Title:
The Effect of Britain’s Smoking Ban

Summary:
Smoking has been declining for the past 50 years in Britain. There are now 2.1 million fewer smokers
compared to around 10 years ago but what role has the smoking ban played in achieving these figures?

Article:
Research in Britain shows that smoking has been declining for 50 years, with 21% of adults now lighting
up, a decrease of one per cent from the year before. This is a stark contrast to 1974 when 45% of adults
smoked cigarettes. A record 59% of adults in the United Kingdom have now never taken up the habit. 1

The use of other tobacco products has declined even more significantly over recent decades as one per
cent of British men now smoke pipes compared with 12% in 1974, while the number of Britons smoking
cigars has fallen from 34% to 2% during the same timeframe.

It also appears that smoking is slightly more common among British males; around 22% of men smoke
compared to 20% per cent of women.

It seems the smoking ban in public spaces and the workplace, combined with government health
campaigns, means that fewer people than ever now smoke in Britain, as they are being encouraged in
various ways to quit.

In pubs, restaurants and all public enclosed places across the country, smokers have been forced outside
if they fancy a puff. The smoking ban came into effect in March 2006 in Scotland, April 2007 in Northern
Ireland and Wales and July 2007 in England.

The smoking ban throughout the United Kingdom should hopefully not only improve the health of smokers
in the long-term, but also help to protect non-smokers from second-hand smoke.

On average, smokers in England get through 14 cigarettes per day, which totals more than £1,000 every
year. 2

Stubbing out the habit for good not only saves you a considerable amount of money but comes with an
accolade of health benefits. Smoking kills half of all lifelong smokers and is responsible for most lung
cancers.

Cigarettes contain more than 4,000 chemicals with nicotine being the most addictive, and the reason why
many smokers find it hard to stop for good.

Smoking can also cause a heart attack; tobacco contributes to hardening of the heart's arteries, which
can then become blocked and starve the heart of blood flow, causing an attack.

Lung problems are one of the most common issues associated with smoking, from lung cancer, which
kills thousands of people in the United Kingdom every year, to other complications like emphysema.

Smoking also increases the risk of other cancers such as uterine, liver, kidney, bladder and stomach
cancers, as well as leukaemia, not to mention increasing your risk of having a stroke.

If you want to kick the habit once and for all then there are plenty of support mechanisms available via the
National Health Service (NHS) to help you along the way.

As well as improving your health and saving you money you may find insurance products are less
expensive when you are a non-smoker.

Many providers wil give you a lower premium as long as you haven’t smoked in the last 12 months. So if
you’ve already given up smoking then it's worth getting a new life insurance quote
(http://www.lv.com/lifeinsurance/lv-life/) to see how much money you could save as a result of your new,
healthier lifestyle.
