The news that the government aims to halve the number of people smoking in England by 2020 prompted listener Mo Hutchison to write:
"In the mid-70s I was admitted to hospital for 3 weeks bed-rest. As I was escorted to my bed an anxious-to-please nurse asked if there was anything she could get me. I said I'd like an ashtray if it wasn't too much trouble.
Back she duly came with said ashtray and I got through 20 fags a day while lying on the bed - no mean feat. Now I am off to get up close and personal with a group of strangers huddling around a patio heater in the lashing rain and storm force gales - that will probably do for me."
Mmm. Things were different back then Mo... but we like the idea of making a programme about your smoking stories.
Is the ritual of smoking an essential part of your day. Did you meet the love of your life because of cigarettes? Is there one smoke you remember above all the others? Comment below, email us or tweet
