A quick search on Google for the number of cigarettes that the average smoker smokes in a day returns the answer of: 14 (male) and 13 (female).
I've also seen other websites which puts smokers in the following classes:
Under 20 cigarettes a day : Light Smoker
20-40 cigarettes a day : Average Smoker
Over 40 cigarettes a day : Heavy Smoker
To me the number looks quite high for an 'average smoker' to smoke 20-40 a day.
I was wondering if this number was accurate and so I've created a poll to see, on average, how many cigarettes people smoke a day.
Also, if anyone on here does smoke more then 20 or so a day, I was wondering how you have enough hours in a day to smoke them or how long you go between cigarettes?
I don't want this to turn into a 'smoking is bad for you' argument, that's not the purpose of the poll.
