Question to ex-smokers: On average, how many cigarettes did you smoke each day?
There are significant and persistent differences in the prevalence of smoking, with the highest rates observed in Greece (37%), Bulgaria (36%), France (36%) and Croatia (35%) with over a third saying that they currently smoke. In all but six of the 28 Member States, at least a fifth (20%) of respondents are smokers. The lowest proportions are found in Sweden (7%) and the United Kingdom (17%). It is worth noting however that 23% of the respondents in Sweden use oral tobacco at least monthly. These patterns regarding prevalence are very similar to those observed in the previous surveys.
