Abstract The Risk Factor Prevalence Survey conducted by the National Heart Foundation in Australian capital cities in 1989 revealed that, for the first time ever, there were more ex-smokers than current smokers among Australian adults of working age. This major landmark in public health went unnoticed, and, well over a decade later, has still not been achieved in Britain. How can it be that the cradle of epidemiology and the home of the British Doctors Study (and all that it has taught us about the harm done by smoking) is itself doing so poorly in tobacco control?
