In brief: SMOKERS DEAD or QUIT
I suspect 'the old smokers are dead or they quit! i just returned from prague and germany and noted a lot of young smokers, also.
According to gallup, smoking rates are as follows: former communist countries (29%), central europe (29%), and the european union (28%). These smoking rates are all higher than us average of 24%. The highest in the world now is cuba @ 40% --the us rate in '70's!
