Abstract: Introduction: Tobacco use also increases the risk of many fatal diseases such as cancer, emphysema, heart disease and other circulatory diseases. If trends in tobacco use continue, approximately 500 million people alive today will die from smoking, and, by 2030, tobacco is expected to be the leading cause of premature death, accounting for about 10 million deaths per year. There is great urgency to disseminate research findings that can inform the development and implementation of effective tobacco control policies. Materials and methods: A Multi-stage cluster sampling was employed to select the study population. Clusters of people using tobacco products were randomly selected for the study. A pre-tested, structured questionnaire was adapted from questionnaires used previously in studies done by Analice Gigliotti et al. and administered to 340 subjects and responses were collected and analyzed in SSPSS software version 20. Results: Tobacco consumption per day was found to be significantly increasing with the age of the study subjects (b=0.534, p<0.001). Tobacco consumption per day was found to be significantly less among females (b=-0.184, p=0.002). Tobacco consumption per day was found to be significantly decreasing with the SES of the study subjects (b=-0.118, p=0.048) and number of children (b=-0.228, p=0.003). Conclusion: Taxes and prices increases have great potential to stimulate cessation or reduction of cigarette consumption further among two important vulnerable populations of smokers in young smokers and those of low socio economic status level. The results from the present study also suggest that seeking illegal products may reduce the impact of increased taxes, but does not eliminate it.
