# Smoking dynamics with health education effect

• Received: 12 July 2018 Accepted: 21 November 2018 Published: 30 November 2018
• This paper provides a mathematical study for analyzing the dynamics of smoking with health education campaigns involved. The method of next generation matrix is used to derive the basic reproduction number $R_0$. We prove that the smoking-free equilibrium is both locally and globally asymptotically stable if $R_0 \lt 1$; and the smoking-present equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable if $R_0 \gt 1$. By comparing with smoking dynamics without health education involved, we conclude that health education can decrease smoking population. Numerical simulations are used to support our conclusions.
