More people smoke in France than in the UK, a staggering 20% more. Throat, mouth and lung cancer kill 78,000 people a year. A possible factor is that French people don’t like to be told what to do. When the government decided to put warnings on cigarette packets, a fashion house brought out jolly covers to slip over the cartons. Smoking ruins the status of France as a healthy country. Cigarettes are only available in a Bar Tabac and not in a supermarket or corner shop. One of my students gave up smoking because she hated having to go into one to buy her weekly supplies.

It is not bar tabac, it is BUREAU DE TABAC
Hello Christine, thank-you for your interest in my site. Your email has had me scratching my head as the place to buy cigarettes in our village is the Bar Tabac, but in the town there are specialist Bureaux de Tabacs so on refection I think we are both correct. Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year, Joy Brodier
