It seems that the long running chants of reducing smoking rate have been finally heard as it has been confirmed that in Victoria, smoking rate has gone down by over 25%.
It was found after a team from Cancer Council questioned nearly 4,500 people over the phone and found that over only 15% are smoking on regular basis as if now against 21% around 13 years ago, though it's being linked with increase in tobacco products.
Though it sends a fresh wave in the contours of society, the Chief Executive of the Cancer Council of Victoria, Todd Harper, thinks the other way around.
"I think the declines that we've seen over the last few years are really a combination of tax increases [and] of social marketing campaigns of smoke-free environments", Harper said.
There is no second thought that smoking has range of health issues attached, but it takes a lot to bring exemplary changes in the global health issue.
It's being believed that corroborative pressure from range of factors, including pressure from government bodies and other volunteer organization makes it feasible for the smoking rate to reach a new low.
Not even this, such reports act as a source of inspiration for many other groups to take strategic steps towards eradicating the scar of smoking.
