More stop smoking dodgy statistics from Cancer Research UK.
In 2007, 32% of smokers in England said they had tried to quit within the previous three months. This fell to 23% in 2008, 22% in 2009 and stood at 17% at the end of October 2010.
Depends on what you ask a smoker.
And you have a worrying paragraph below.
Professor Robert West, director of tobacco studies at the Cancer Research UK health behaviour research centre, said: "As the country tightens its financial belt, we've seen the number of smokers trying to quit slow down.
So we’re to be likened to Dogs or lab Rats now.
Professor West's report also found that fewer than 5% of smokers use NHS stop smoking services, which have been found to be much more effective than quitting alone.
Yeh right. The quit rate from their own published figures gives a high success rate of just 1.6%. Very effective my arse.
The one thing you have completely overlooked Professor West, is that Smokers like smoking.
So just FUCK OFF and leave me alone.
