The Citygroup company specialists had conducted the study, processed the data on the number of smokers in countries around the world. According to their calculations, over the past decade, smoking people worldwide are almost 10% less. For example, in Britain, where 50 years ago the percentage of smokers was the highest, now only 20% of the population is addicted to nicotine. The same percentage is in Belgium, Finland, Norway and the United States. Citygroup notes reducing trend of cigarette amateurs in recent years in Russia.
