Voice and friend of the smoker

Welcome to the new Forest website. The site is currently in development and will go live soon. 

GENERATIONAL SMOKING BAN

A new poll for the smokers’ lobby group Forest has found that almost two thirds (64%) of adults in Britain say that when people are 18 and legally an adult they should be allowed to purchase cigarettes and other tobacco products.

"It’s not simply smoking that MPs are about to phase out of existence, but the principle that a person should be allowed to determine his or her own destiny."

Kate Andrews, The Spectator,

"Smoking is probably a lost cause, of course. Forest are, as their opponents would say, on the wrong side of history. But the wider war continues, as it has done for centuries, and there’s something to be said – as the shadows gather – for keeping the lighter flickering."

Alwyn Turner, Lion and Unicorn,

My closest friendships have been strengthened through hours of conversation in smoking areas, and the most interesting conversations I’ve had have been sparked by someone asking “Can I borrow your lighter?”

Kara Kennedy, Spectator World,

"I couldn’t imagine not smoking. I’ve done it for 68 years, so are you telling me I’m doing something wrong? Fuck off."
