Smoking could be practically unheard of in London by 2030 if the current rate of people quitting continues.
The results of the Annual Population Survey showed that just 15.2% of Londoners were smoking in 2016 - and the figure is declining at a rate of 3% every four years.
If this rate of decline continues, London will hit its target of having just 5% of the population smoking by 2030.
Currently, 1.3 million Londoners smoke, however roughly one in three smokers want to quit the habit, which can cause serious health issues and increase the chances of developing lung cancer among other diseases.
Quitting smoking can be hard as nicotine found in the smoke is an addictive substance, but research has shown that having the right support while trying to kick the habit can improve people's chances.
A helpline to help Londoners quit, Stop Smoking London, has been launched to provide support for those wanting to quit smoking by providing free and varied support across the capital.
Trained advisers can help you with information, regular motivation and advice about willpower as well as proven tips.
The helpline is open Monday-Friday 9am-8pm and Saturday & Sunday 11am-4pm and can be reached by calling 0300 123 1044.
