This chapter assesses the role of tobacco smoking as a cause of premature mortality in Europe, and its contribution to the health gap between the EU10 and EU15 countries, using several complementary approaches. It reviews the history of tobacco smoking in the EU10 countries and analyses the patterns of tobacco smoking. Since lung cancer is the cause of death most strongly associated with tobacco smoking, the chapter also analyses temporal trends in lung cancer mortality in Europe. Finally, it estimates the mortality attributable to tobacco smoking in the EU countries.

Keywords:   Europe, cigarette smoking, tobacco use, premature mortality, mortality rates, lung cancer
