Title: Scratch 'N' Sniff: Blimey!

You're all probably wondering what the jiggins is happening on the cover of our splendicious issue this week! What is all this scratch 'n' sniff malarkey?! Well, my inquisitive young reader, all is about to become crystal clear!
Number One has teamed up with Philip Schofield and the Health Education Authority to create a lovely little package for you! If you tine into Philip's Going Live! show on Radio 1 at 2.30pm on Sunday, September 8, you will get to hear pop starlet Sophie Lawrence taking us through the weird world of smells, including our scratch 'n' sniffers!
The smell of smoking unfortunately always seems to be around us and you all must know that smoking is about as clever as sawing your foot off with a toothpick! And as for alcohol, well if you do drink it, then drink it sensibly!
So if you'd like to join in on Phil and Sophie's fun have your scratch and sniff cards at the ready! Why not go for your wonderful Smoking Who, Needs It? duffle bags - they're packed to the rafters with wondrous goodies! Well, whack SMOKING STINKS on a postcard and send to our usual competition address on page 47!
