As Professor Bertrand Dautzenberg announced in a recent tweet: " We are heading towards the end of tobacco addiction". In any case this is the feeling that can be had by observing the latest figures of tobacco deliveries in tobacconists who are clearly in freefall.
We begin to understand why tobacconists are looking for new opportunities! Indeed, according to Logista figures for the month of June 2018, deliveries of tobacco to tobacconists in mainland France are down sharply. Between the month of June 2017 and June 2018, there is a drop of 16,71% of delivery of cigarettes and 13,03% of delivery of tobacco to tobacconists tobacconists. A real free fall that clearly pushes for reconversion.

And these figures in the long term are confirmed with more recent statistics. Indeed, the increase in 10-15% of tobacco prices in March by tax increase seems to be a real success. From March to June, 2018 shows a drop of 13,3% in the delivery of cigarettes to tobacconists.
