Description:
Most people are aware that tobacco smoking has serious effects on health and that it is the leading cause of preventable death worldwide.1 In spite of this, data from the Health Service Executive (HSE) from December 2013 show that 22.9% of the male and 20.2% of the female population in Ireland smokes tobacco.2 Although the negative effects of smoking, including cancer, cardiovascular disease and lung disease, are well recognised by smokers, they consistently underestimate their own risk of developing disease.
