The Filter is a Wales-only, bilingual information and advice service about tobacco and smoking. We want to give you the facts and filter out the myths about tobacco. We're not here to moan to you about the dangers of smoking because everyone knows that smoking kills - half of regular and ex-smokers die from smoking-related illnesses. We're just saying that if you're going to do it, do it with informative, accurate knowledge on what you're doing.
