    Abstract

    We study factors impacting the initiation and termination of smoking as well as its "heaviness" on the basis of RLMS data. An asymmetric influence of cigarette prices is revealed, and an addictive character of tobacco consumption is confirmed. We find that it is possible to reduce smoking by popularization of a healthy lifestyle.
