The number of smokers in Ireland has decreased by an estimated 80,000 people over the past three years. The prevalence of smoking dropped from 23 per cent in 2015 to 20 per cent in 2018. So about 20 per cent of the population are current smokers; 17 per cent are daily smokers, down from 19 per cent in 2017, and 44 per cent of all smokers have made an attempt to quit in the past 12 months (Healthy Ireland 2018). While much progress has been made, tobacco use is still the leading cause of preventable death in Ireland with almost 6,000 smokers dying each year from tobacco-related diseases.
