One in two smokers will die
from a smoking-related disease

Will you
draw the
short straw?

January's Poster of the Month revisits a common health issue our posters have tackled many times before.

According to ASH Action on Smoking and Health, although smoking has more than halved in the UK since 1974, around 10 million UK adults continue to smoke. Broken down, that's around 22% of men, 17% of women and one sixth of the UK population as a whole.

Smoking prevalence is highest in the 25–34 age group. These are young people of working age, some of whom you may employ.

Around two-thirds of current smokers would like to quit, but only 30–40% actually make an attempt to quit in a given year.

Around half of smokers will die from a smoking-related disease.

Most smokers wouldn't part with their money given these odds, but they are gambling with their health and their lives every time they light up.

So the premise of this poster is about taking a gamble.
