Yes Russians Do Smoke…

Teenagers...

Russia has more smokers than any other country according to a recent World Health Organization (WHO) report, presented to the Russian health ministry on Tuesday. The WHO survey, conducted in 2009, found that Russia has 43.9 million smokers, which makes up 40 percent of the population. The survey also revealed that 60 percent of Russian men and 22 percent of Russian women smoke.

I hate to say this but those numbers seem to be on the nice side…

I was just talking to Sveta the other day about how many smokers there is in Russia. I put the percent in the Moscow (European) area at about 60 percent men and 40 percent women. Then I would say for the Siberian area in Russia it is much much higher. Total population has to exceed 50 percent smokers…

I thought that Kentucky in America had a lot of smokers but they do not hold a candle to Moscow. The one area that America has on Russia is smokeless tobacco. I never see that here but maybe I just do not look hard enough…

Women are taking up smoking by the droves in Moscow and the teenagers look like choo choo trains as they run from flat to flat…

Walking downtown Moscow, sometimes you feel that everyone smokes but Sveta and I… 🙂

I quit when I came to Russia after 30 plus years of smoking. It was strange because I found a smokers paradise here in Russia…

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
