Smoking is the leading cause of avoidable deaths in Ireland* with 6,000 people dying each year from the effects of smoking. LloydsPharmacy have released new research giving an insight into the obstacles and thoughts amongst Irish adults when it comes to breaking the habit of smoking. Almost 7 in 10 Irish adults claim that they have been
