People in Guernsey are being told they could be "the vanguard of Europe" when it comes to anti-smoking laws.
Last week the government backed plans to investigate the introduction of plain packaging of cigarettes, though a call to impose smoke-free zones in parts of the island were thrown out.
Now, UK-based anti-smoking campaign group ASH is urging States Members and islanders to keep up the momentum, to reduce the number of people smoking, and cut smoking-related illness.
In 2006 when Guernsey became the first place in the British Isles to introduce a smoking ban in enclosed public spaces, the UK only followed suit a year later.
Guernsey also outlawed smoking in prisons at the start of 2013 and this year the island, again ahead of the UK, backed moves to introduce plain packaging of cigarettes. But those in the tobacco industry say that idea's flawed.
But anti-smoking campaigners say criticisms of standardised packaging is just a distraction.
