The health minister Mark Drakeford has promoted the health benefits of stopping smoking as Stoptober gets underway across the country.
"I applaud all those that will be giving up smoking in October.
"Stopping smoking for 28 days means that you're five times more likely to stop for good and the benefits will become clear in just a few weeks.
"People who give up smoking will not only reduce their risk of heart disease and lung cancer but they will also have financial benefits.
"The Stoptober campaign aims to raise awareness of the benefits of giving up smoking and the free support available through Stop Smoking Wales."
