How to stop smoking in Spain and how to quit smoking in Barcelona.
Spain can be a challenging place to stop smoking because there seem to be more people smoking here than in many European countries. Perhaps that is the good weather that which means you see more people smoking outside than in colder climates. Also it is still legal to smoke on cafe and restaurant terraces in Spain and finally cigarettes are still cheaper than in many other European countries. A packet of cigarettes in Spain costs around €4.50.
Spain only recently banned smoking inside bars and restaurants and started to raise cigarette prices. Less than 10 years ago it was very common to see people smoking in all public places even though smoking was not permitted there.
So although Spain is catching up with modern attitudes to smoking and still has a way to go to prevent many young Spaniards from smoking.
