It might come as a surprise to find out that on average, less than 3 out of 10 16-24 year olds smoke. The number is falling too.
Those who do smoke come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Some don't even admit they smoke. Social smokers and weed smokers - it's still smoking.
There are lots of reasons to have a go at giving up smoking, even if you’re only an occasional smoker. You save money and you don’t stink of stale fags. You also make sure that when you...

More than 200 pupils took the plunge and submitted entries to the Birkenhead Park poetry competition, which this year had ‘water’ as its theme.
The winners were announced earlier this month across all three age categories and, in addition to receiving prizes at a ceremony at the park, some of the winners also got to plant new trees in the park.
In total, 227 young people from local schools and 14 adults entered this year’s competition, submitting poetry and prose in a range of styles.
For the third year running, Wirral's young heroes are to be honoured at an award ceremony so impressive that it's gained a national profile and won awards of its own.
The Youth Heroes Awards, set up in 2011, were founded by local charity Wirral Youth for Christ (YFC) as a grassroots response to the riots that rocked the whole nation.
In the summer of that year, YFC took a group of 'young heroes' on a humanitarian mission to central India. The small group of young people raised over £15,000...

Luke Bambridge, who survived a match point in round one, secured an impressive 2nd round win over 5th seeded German Peter Torebko 64 64.
