E-cigarettes more popular in Estonia as young people start smoking earlier

The number of people who smoke on a daily basis in Estonia has decreased on year, with more and more men in particular opting to quit. Among young people, however, that trend has now reversed, especially among girls and young women. This is mainly due to the introduction of e-cigarettes, the taste of which can be sweetened with different flavorings. Thus, e-cigarettes, which are primarily intended to help people quit regular cigarettes, have become a first step into the world of smoking for many young people.


24.20% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 264,783 current smokers in Estonia 31.20% of men are current smokers but only 18.00% of women.
