Why do many Europeans still smoke cigarettes? (IS it true that even in the Netherlands that 1/3 of people smoke still?)?

how ever if go over to the U.K. these days, how that compares? and the USA has nearly made smoking cigarettes into like a crime nearly ? what is the agenda to promote it so much and then start cracking down on people addicted to it?
Update: Btw, is it seen as a "low class" thing mostly in Europe? or why not?
