Smoking: Facts and figures
- About 12 million adults in the UK smoke cigarettes – about 27 per cent of men and 25 per cent of women. In 1974, 51 per cent of men and 41 per cent of women smoked cigarettes. The decline in recent years has been most concentrated in older age groups, meaning that young people are taking up smoking as older smokers quit
- Smoking is highest among people aged 20 to 34: 38 percent of men and women in this age group smoke. Among older age groups, the proportion gradually declines. The lowest smoking rate is among people aged 60 and over: 15 per cent
- About 114,000 people in the UK die each year due to smoking
- If you continue smoking, there’s a 50% chance it will kill you
- Smoking kills around six times more people in the UK than road traffic accidents (3,439), other accidents (8,579), poisoning and overdose (3,157), murder and manslaughter (513), suicide (4,066), and HIV infection (234) all put together (22,833 – 2002 figures)
- Cigarette smoke contains 60 substances that are known to cause cancer
- You could be killing others. About 2,700 people aged 20-64 and a further 8,000 deaths a year among people aged 65 years or older die from second hand smoke
- You could be hurting your children. Infants of parents who smoke are more likely to be admitted to hospital for bronchitis and pneumonia in the first year of life. More than 17,000 children under the age of five are admitted to hospital every year because of the effects of passive smoking.
- Smoking causes 30 per cent of all cancer deaths (including at least 84 per cent of lung cancer deaths), 17 per cent of all heart disease deaths and at least 80 per cent of deaths from bronchitis and emphysema
- Stopping smoking reduces this risk – if you stop before you are 35, your health risks can be reduced to the same as those of a lifelong non-smoker
- People do give up – 21 per cent of women and 27 per cent of men are ex-smokers. Surveys show that about 70 per cent of current smokers would like to give up altogether
