Citigroup gave out an amazing bit of information telling that the habit of smoking has only about 50 more years to live on the developed area of the globe.

Going by the dropping graphs a date for each country to hit the zero mark can be predicted (should the trend continue).
Here are some roughly estimated dates telling when smoking may die out completely in 18 countries in different parts of the globe.
