Knowing that giving up smoking is the right thing to do is one thing. Actually giving up is another matter entirely.
A recent survey of 4 000 adults in England reveals that one-in-10 is a "secret smoker"; so secret, in fact, that many don't even reveal it to their own doctors.
According to BBC News, the survey was commissioned by Boots, a large British pharmacy chain, and it found that 52 percent of the secret smokers hid their habit from their parents, even into adulthood. What's even more surprising is that fully a third kept their smoking habits from their doctor.
And another third said they lied to their family members, some of whom believed they had never smoked or had given it up.
For some reason, the BBC reports, Londoners are more likely to keep their habit secret, followed by those who live in Yorkshire. No reason was given for this. – (HealthDayNews)
