At Anne Penman Laser Therapy we are delighted to read that smoking rates are in decline in Scotland.

Based on findings from the Scottish Household Survey 2014, which was published this month, the survey indicates that only 20 percent of adults now smoke.

This is a drop from 23 percent based on the 2011 survey.   It’s the biggest fall since 1999.

Public Health Minister Maureen Watt is quoted as saying:

‘These figures show a significant drop in the number of smokers. Smoking is Scotland’s largest cause of preventable ill health and death.’

The long term aim of the Scottish Government is to reduce tobacco smoking to less than 5 percent of the population by the year 2034.

Anne Penman Laser Therapy continues to do their bit to help these falling numbers with our unique PAIN FREE, DRUG FREE, NICOTINE FREE treatment and our aim is to target communities where the rates are still rising and help them quit.

We would also welcome the opportunity to take part in any clinical research aimed at smokers and smoking cessation alternatives.
