Posted on: 09 Feb 2022

The Department for Health and Social Care has launched the Better Health Smoke Free campaign film which discuss how adult smokers can influence younger people. Analysis has also shown that early teens whose main caregiver smoked were more than twice as likely to have tried cigarettes (26% versus 11%) and 4 times as likely to be a regular smoker (4.9% versus 1.2%).

In a new film released today, NHS and behavioural health experts discuss the link between adult smoking and the likelihood of children in their household becoming smokers.
