February 14, 2018

Nearly 20% of the world’s adult population smokes cigarettes, according to TobaccoAtlas.org. Smokers consume nearly 5.9 trillion cigarettes— representing a 13% increase in cigarette consumption in the past decade. Here’s a look at the 10 countries where the most cigarettes are consumed per capita.


10. Montenegro


Cigarette consumption per capita: 2,157

Cigarette consumption historically has been highest in high-income countries, but because of targeted marketing, increased social acceptability, continued economic development and population increases, consumption is expected to increase in low- and middle-income countries, according to TobaccoAtlas.


9.  Belarus


Cigarette consumption per capita: 2,266

Cigarette consumption in Western Europe dropped by 26% between 1990 and 2009 but increased in the Middle East and Africa by 57% during the same period,  In the image above a Belarusian man smokes a cigarette while cooling down near a fountain in Minsk during a heat wave.


8. Bosnia Herzegovina
