National Statistics

Statistics on Smoking, England - 2016 [NS]

Publication date: May 27, 2016

Return to Find data

Summary

Update: On 11/07/2016 historical data in excel table 1.2 was updated to reflect revisions made to the source data by ONS. The chart which uses these data on slide 23 has not been updated as the revisions have a minimal effect on the trends in the data series.

 

This statistical report presents a range of information on smoking which is drawn together from a variety of sources. The report aims to present a broad picture of health issues relating to smoking in England and covers topics such as smoking prevalence, habits, behaviours and attitudes among adults and school children, smoking-related ill health and mortality and smoking-related costs.

 

The topics covered include:

 

Part 1: Smoking patterns in adults

 

Part 2: Smoking patterns in children

 

Part 3: Availability and affordability of tobacco

 

Part 4: Behaviour and attitudes to smoking

 

Part 5: Smoking-related costs, ill health and mortality

 

Each part provides an overview of the key findings on these topics, as well as providing links to sources of further information and relevant documents.

 

This report contains data and information previously published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), Department of Health, the Office for National Statistics and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. The report also includes new analyses carried out by the Health and Social Care Information Centre.

Think everyone would agree it's a bad habit, class it as suicide, don't think so.

You'd need to include drink and drug abuse.

Well done!

I have tried quitting so many times and failed.

It's the most stupid habit I ever picked up, but there you go.

One day I might find the strength to stop for good...

I quit smoking in Jan 2015, I had a 30+ day habit & I was buying fags @ 40/60/80 a time. The cost was astonishing!

 

I finally managed to quit after my eldest son (who quit over 2 yrs ago) got me a vape.

 

It took a good month to get used to it & a bit longer for the urges to go buy fags to stop. It was more a mental thing as I kept visualising going to buy fags.

 

Best thing I ever did was quit, the money I saved from smoking went on doing up my garden & home. I saw the costs of everything as in packs of fags, I.E new gazebo = 35 packs.

 

Good luck to anyone trying to quit!

 

Edit; too early for spelling. Lol


I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every single minute of it!!
