The Malaga branch of the Spanish Association against Cancer reported last week that the fever to give up smoking caused by the anti-smoking laws introduced two-and a-half years ago has abated considerably. A spokesman said their had been a sharp drop in the sales of nicotine tables and other products that help smokes to give up the habit and that fewer people were joining the courses designed to help them get over their addiction. As a result, the waiting list for the courses officered by the Association had been reduced from more than one year to about four months now. A spokesman said the Association was concerned that one in four youths aged 14 to 18 now smoke on a daily basis, especially the girls.
