Cigarette smoking in Iceland is decreasing, while vaping increased by a third – from 6% to 8% of the adult population – between 2016 and 2017.

The survey also revealed an increase in the number of people who have never smoked but have tried e-cigarettes, from 7% of e-cig users in 2016 to 12% in 2017.
