Unemployed jobseekers 'twice as likely to smoke' than working employees

London, Sept. 27 (ANI): A new research has revealed that nearly four in ten people, who are out of work, are addicted to smoking.

Young people, who are jobless, are likelier to smoke, with more than 50 percent of unemployed 25- to 34-year-olds craving the nicotine drag, Metro.co.uk reported.

The Office for National Statistics found that the number of Britons, who smoke, has barely changed since 2007, when smoking was banned and the legal age for buying cigarettes rose to 18.

Their report also revealed that seven percent of pregnant women carry on smoking. (ANI)
