Two-thirds of all smokers want to give up but can't.
One half of all smokers will die prematurely because of their habit.
The smell from smoking will linger on your clothes and in your house for days.
About 120,000 people die each year in the UK from smoking related illnesses - which is 330 deaths a day.
