For smokers who do not feel able to quit right now, it is important to follow these safety tips:

  • Never smoke in bed
  • Always use a proper ashtray, never put cigarettes directly into a bin
  • Don’t leave a lit cigarette, cigar or pipe lying around, they can easily fall over and start a fire
  • Take extra care if you smoke when you are tired, taking prescription drugs or if you have been drinking alcohol
  • Keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children
