Just One in Ten English People Will Be Smokers by 2023, Study Says

Just one in 10 English people will smoke cigarettes in five years and Britain could be a smoke-free society by 2030, according to Public Health England (PHE). The forecasts were made after 400,000 people gave up smoking in England last year, leaving 6.1 million smokers -- or 14.9% of the population in the country, according to the Office for National Statistics. That's down from a 15.5% rate the previous year and a 19.8% level in 2011
