Eleven percent of adults smoke now compared to 16 percent in 2004. And according to the government's goals, teenage smoking over the past ten years should have have been halved by next year. But instead, it is on the rise.
"They're probably not going to reach that goal," Cecilia Birgersson, a researcher at the National Institute of Public Health, tells newspaper agens Nyheter.
Nearly 40 percent of teenagers in their second year of high school say they smoke.
