Smoking in Sweden
Smoking in Sweden is at a very low prevalence; only 11% of the total Swedish population (8% of men and 10% of women) smoked daily in 2016. Around another 10% smoke occasionally. Smoking has been banned in all bars and restaurants since May 2005. A majority of Swedes supported the introduction of the ban. Sweden was the only European country to achieve the WHO goal of less than 20% daily smoking prevalence among adults by year 2000. Sweden has a high level of use of smokeless tobacco, specifically a moist snuff product called 'snus', which some Swedes have used as a replacement for smoking.
