This table is extracted from Encarta, but there is no year indicator. Thus I am not so sure if it is a recent figure.
What I really want to attract attention here is for Cambodia, which is still high in the rate of smokers. I am not sure if the law to ban smoking in public areas is passed or not yet. However, I am happy that many people care and many Cambodian public places now do not allow smoking. Hopefully, Cambodia will soon be a smoke-free country.
“My father who had been a very strong smoker, gave up smoking many years ago when he first listened to a program in which a doctor introduced the danger caused by smoking. He completely gave up smoking after that sudden. I wish sooner or later more and more people give up smoking. If you cannot give it up completely, please just try to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke. My father said it was difficult at first but not too hard. ”
I share this experience here because I am much aware that giving up one’s habbit is not easy. It needs time and committment.
Just care for all my people,
