A model of proposals for the new cigarette packet

Smoking in France 法国的吸烟问题


It's a habit that is costing France dearly.

More than 70,000 people die in the country each year from tobacco-related illnesses.

The government plans to change cigarette packets. They might soon have no branding and carry large health warnings.

France has often been seen as a paradise for smokers, in part because of the cafe culture. It's estimated that a quarter of the population smokes.
