    Having served as editor of Tobacco Control for the past seven years, I have decided to step down from this position. Since the journal’s launch in 1992, we have made great strides with the publication, and the positive feedback we’ve received from readers, authors, and many others has been gratifying. One of the most enjoyable aspects of my service as editor has been the opportunity to work with a superb team of co-editors, and with friends and colleagues at the BMJ Publishing Group who define the word “professional”. But it is time for me to move on to other challenges, and to let others take over the helm.
