A QUARTER of smokers in Swindon and Wiltshire worry they won’t live long enough to support their friends and loved ones in times of need, according to research conducted by Smokefree South West to mark No Smoking Day on Wednesday 12 March.

Family and friends of smokers on the other hand are most concerned about how much regret their loved one will feel at dying early as a result of smoking.

Smokefree South West, the public health body which works to cut smoking-related early death across the region, carried out the survey as part of their be there tomorrow campaign. Billboard adverts are going up across Swindon this week.
