It seems that smoking women are like a bit of a bad boy for men, but 63 % of women consider that men are more attractive if they smoke, in comparison with the 18 % of men who find smoking women more attractive.

25 % of men said that it is the same difference to them whether a women smokes or not, but women seem to be more anxious about this matter as only 15 % of them said they didn’t mind either way.

So who is more like to smoke, and when? So, in the group, that consists of people between the ages of 18-25, 67 % of men were smokers and 58 per cent of women were smoking.

Men are less likely to smoke when they get older. Only 62 % of men between the ages of 26-40 smoked. Women are apparently more like to smoke as they get older as 58 % of women in the same age group smoked.

It is not a secret that smoking can cause serious damages to people’s health and lead to an early grave, but the health of a smoker is not the only thing that is damaged. People around smokers are also affected by secondhand smoking.

A price of a pack of 20 cigarettes is on average £7.20, so if a person is smoking a pack per day, that’s over £50 per week a smoker, spends on cigarettes.

The survey revealed that men spend more money on tobacco products than women – men spend £54 a week in comparison with women who spend £47.
