Dr Virginia Pearson, Devon County Council’s Director of Public Health:
“Quitting smoking is the most important step you can take to improve your health, because smoking is eventually the cause of death in half of all smokers
“Only 12.6% of the Devon adult population still smoke, and evidence shows that over 60% of smokers would like to quit.
“We’d like to make it as easy as possible for even more people in Devon to take that step towards a healthier tomorrow.”
