Like many others, he has been inspired by our Clear The Air campaign to give up what has been the habit of a lifetime.
He found that when you want to quit you are not alone as there is an abundance of support, from GP's, pharmacists, midwives, and from other like-minded people taking on one of the toughest challenges they will have faced.
It is because it is difficult to give up that there is professional help out there to guide you through and help with the cravings.
It is vital that the smoking cessation services are protected, even in these times of austerity budgets and cuts across the board.
Investing money in helping people stop smoking is a preventative spend and society as well as the individual concerned will reap the benefits in years to come.
Fewer cancer deaths, fewer heart attacks, more people with a longer, more productive working life are the future prizes from getting more people to lead a healthier life now.
Adrian Divers has a long road ahead of him before he will feel confident he is finally smoke free, but he has taken the first steps, which are often the hardest.
We hope many more will follow his lead and seek help to give up smoking and clear the air.
