The Department continues to monitor developments in tobacco use across the world. Whilst rates of smoking have decreased amongst young women in Norway, overall levels of tobacco use have remained stable. Evidence shows that the consumption of any tobacco product is harmful. We will continue to promote the use of nicotine replacement therapy and e-cigarettes as a way to quit smoking.
