Does the same rule still apply? I'm a chain smoker and would be visiting next month. I've already started panicking. I really hope that rules have not got changed.

Same rule still applies as far as I know though I stopped smoking years ago myself and haven’t checked it out recently.

In principle, you can import an unlimited amount under EU law, so long as you can persuade the douanes that it’s for personal consumption. I wish you luck if you want to try. In practice, they now seem to tolerate 4 cartouches, eg here
