Turkey has witnessed an above-average decrease in smoking rates in comparison to EU countries while also maintaining low levels of alcohol consumption rates, according to a recent report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

There was a 20 percent decrease in the number of smokers in the last decade, with just 25 percent of the population aged 15 years and over smoking daily. The EU average for daily smokers was around 23 percent of the population following a 16 percent decrease in member states.

Turkey was also one of the states with the highest gender gap in smoking with men smoking in much higher numbers than women. The country also remained the country with the lowest alcohol consumption in adults between 1980 and 2010, with rates falling under four liters per year. The average amount totaled 10.7 liters per adult in European countries – the highest consumers of alcohol in the world.

There is still way to go though.
