Professor Dwyer said : ‘The evidence from this paper comes from a unique Australian study which conducted a substantial number of measurements on children of school age and has now followed them for over 30 years. This paper reports on the association of changes in partnering and parental status on smoking in both men and women who report having been smokers. The cessation of a relationship with a partner increases the likelihood that the man will resume smoking more than it does for a woman, but childbirth is more likely to affect women, increasing the likelihood that they will give up smoking.’
