To mark the day, Heart has been speaking to Liz Fisher from Hertfordshire's NHS Stop Smoking, to see how what is being done to help smokers quit the habit:
"For No Smoking Day 2010, we have joined up with our local pharmacies to promote all the services on offer to help Hertfordshire smokers to quit.
"With so much help near to where you live or work there has never been a better time to quit. You can even quit online using our new website www.smokefreehertfordshire.nhs.uk."
