Usual sources of cigarettes
When smokers were asked where they usually got their cigarettes, nine out of 10 purchased them for themselves, most often from a small grocery or convenience store or gas station (Figure 3.1). Only 2.4% of smokers stated their usual source of cigarettes as a First Nations reserve (either on-site or delivery service), and 2.2% cited "other" sources. The remaining 6.5% usually got cigarettes through social sources.
