Campaigners hope that smoking in the UK is made so expensive and socially unacceptable that people end up giving up the habit.

Professor John Britton, chair of the Royal College of Physicians Tobacco Advisory Group, told Sky News that the government goal of being a no smoking nation by 2032 is a realistic one.

He added that health secretary Andrew Lansley has the chance to make himself a legacy greater than any of his predecessors.

No smoking signs could play a part in making the habit a thing of the past, while prices could also be put up in order to put people off taking it up.

Alisa Rutter, chief executive of Fresh, told Sky News: "Our vision is to make smoking history for our children in the next 20 years and we know there are millions out there that back this."

According to NHS figures, one in every 20 hospital beds in the UK is occupied by someone with a smoking-related illness, with 1,260 adults admitted every day.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801440635-ADNFCR
