London: Smokers are justifying their habit by labelling it as a social activity, and claiming they are nothing more than a social smoker, says a new research.

The research conducted by The Co-operative Pharmacy reveals that a quarter of smokers are in denial because of the stigma associated with it and now only class themselves as social smokers. In reality though, over a third of these are smoking between 6-20 cigarettes a day.
