Bulgaria: New Study: Almost Two Thirds of the Bulgarians Are Smokers pixabay.com

A study by the National Patients’ Organization has found out that 59% of Bulgarians between the age of 19 and 64 are smokers.

Almost all respondents smoke cigarettes and very few use smokeless tobacco or e-cigarettes.

According to the study, 44% of smokers do not intend to change their bad habit, while another 41% plan to reduce smoking.

About 10% of respondents said they had given up the habit more than a year ago because of its health effects.

Some of the ex-smokers have stopped smoking because of higher costs, the effect on others and bans in public places. / BNR
