'I have to stop because they're at the age when they're going to start asking questions,' she told the Daily Mirror at the time. 'The short and long-term damage to children's health caused by passive smoking should not be underestimated,' says Dr Liz Edwards, paediatric respiratory fellow at the Royal Brompton Hospital.)

Screen siren Julie Christie turned to therapy in her fight to give up smoking, which is no mean feat for an actress who was expected to smoke for many of her film roles. Steve Neesam, qualified psychotherapist and founder of www.together-therapy.co.uk, believes counselling can help by encouraging people to look at why they started smoking in the first place. 'Smokers become creatures of unthinking habit and counselling allows space for the smoker to gain insight into why they started smoking and which triggers find them reaching for a cigarette,' explains Steve.

If you're considering turning to counselling, it's important to do your research, adds Christopher Morgan-Locke, addiction therapist and clinical director at www.thepeelclinic.org.uk. 'Always try to get personal recommendations, and check that the therapist is a member of one of the relevant professional bodies.'
