The German State collected more tax from smokers in 2017 than in 2016, figures released by the Federal Statistical Office showed on Friday.

Tobacco products worth 31.4 billion dollars were taxed in 2017, an increase of 0.8 billion euros or 3.2 per cent on 2016, the office said.

The sale of cigarettes was also slightly high by 1.1 per cent over the same period to 76 billion units.

However, more Germans were trying to quit smoking as warnings and shocking photos of diseases caused by smoking now appear on German cigarette packaging.
