Smokers seem to be a pretty sorry lot in the UK at the moment; we see them huddling in the cold outside pubs, cafes and even their own homes. The Government has new proposals which may make smoking even more of a taboo that it already is.
 
The Prime Minister has revealed recently that the ban on smoking in vehicles, currently only for company vehicles, will be extended to cover those carrying children as well. This could mean the end to a small haven for cigarette junkies if they have to drive their kids around.
 
The ban has been proposed to reduce the risk of inhaling smoke in enclosed spaces which, studies have shown, can lead to lung cancer and other respiratory diseases. Toxins are concentrated up to 11 times and exposure of children to second hand smoke has resulted in more than 25,000 hospital admissions.
 
There have been real advances in the state of health of people who are now no longer subjected to second hand smoke in places like pubs and restaurants and now, children are being given a chance at a healthier lifestyle even if their parents or carers smoke.
 
This follows the recent shocking advertising campaign showing cancerous tumours “growing” out of cigarettes; all to put smokers off their guilty pleasure.
