Tob. Prev. Cessation 2023;9(Supplement 2):A18
Background and Purpose:
Teachers against Tobacco works with influence at fairs and where politicians gather. Since 2019, questionnaires have been distributed in connection with a prize competition with some questions about attitudes to tobacco and nicotine products. The purpose of the questionnaires is to start a conversation about tobacco issues, to arouse the respondents' interest in the issues and to obtain figures on the attitudes in the various contexts.

We handed out the survey on an A5 paper. The results were then compiled in an Excel file.

A majority of respondents want a more restrictive tobacco policy. However, Liberals and Center Party members are less negative to a more restrictive tobacco policy.

The respondents request a more restrictive tobacco policy. The respondents in the political parties are also in favor of a more restrictive tobacco policy, significantly more than what is expressed in the parties' policies in the Riksdag.

There is every reason to highlight that the political parties do not represent the views of their members on the tobacco issue.

Limitations and Future Research:
The sample is limited to those who are willing to answer the survey. On some occasions there are few respondents but the answers do not differ significantly. More information can be obtained from materials such as e.g. about men or Women have different attitudes as well as the attitudes of those who use tobacco and those who do not.

The author has no conflicts of interest to disclose.
