History of Smoking Free Day
The United Kingdom has seen people in the country become addicted to smoking. In 1984, Smoking Day was observed for the first time. Earlier, it was celebrated on the first Wednesday of March as it started on Ash Wednesday. But over time, that is likely to change. Now, it is celebrated as an annual event throughout the UK and in other countries as well.
