Russians smoke less, the study says

Healthy life style seems to become more popular in Russia as smoking gradually loses its appeal. The share of the smokers aged 18 and older have decreased from 39% to 30% for the past 10 years from 19.455 million in 2000 to 17.021 million in 2009, says the study conducted by TNS Russia. Besides, the modern smokers prefer light cigarettes to strong ones, though some experts say that smoking light cigarettes doesn't mean the harm caused by them is reduced. Meanwhile, the amount of cigarettes produced in Russia remains the same – 410 billion cigarettes annually. Russia is following the European way of smoking cessation, but still we need years to make smoking unpopular. source: Russian Business
