The Government is to help more people to give up smoking, with quitting services expanding to reach more people in places like pubs and supermarkets.

Public health minister Caroline Flint revealed statistics claiming that more people are successfully quitting the habit using NHS Stop Smoking Services it shows an increase of 63% in 2004 compared to the previous year.

Ms Flint said: "The problem of smoking-related disease is not confined to one country or one continent - it is a global issue that can be tackled by learning from the success of others.

"Giving up smoking is the single best thing anyone can do for their health.

"In the UK smoking causes over 100,000 deaths each year and treating smoking related diseases costs the NHS about £1.7 billion a year”.
