First Time Smokers Have A Higher Risk Of Becoming Addicted, Study Shows

Researchers found that 69% of people who had ever tried a cigarette had gone on to become a daily smoker even if just temporarily

A single cigarette can trigger smoking addiction, says study

It shows around 50 to 82 percent people had gone for smoke on a daily basis or temporarily after trying a cigarette a day and when they combined the data, the percentage increased to 68.9%. Three of the surveys were conducted in the USA between 2001 and 2013, another three in the United Kingdom between 2010 and 2014, one in Australia in 2013 and another in New Zealand in 2009.

At least three out of five people who experiment with a cigarette end up becoming daily smokers at some point, a new study finds.

"We've found that the conversion rate from "first time smoker" to "daily smoker" is surprisingly high", he said.

The study's authors said the research showed the "remarkable hold" cigarettes could establish after one experience.

However, Professor Hajek but refutes a link between daily smoking and vaping. According to the survey, only 19% of 11-to-15-year-olds ever tried a cigarette, and that is "good news".

More than two-thirds of people who try cigarettes once become daily smokers, even if only for a short time, a new study suggests.

In 2016, 15.5% of adults from the United Kingdom smoked - about 7.6 million people - according to the Office for National Statistics, down from 19.9% in 2010. The different surveys used different methodologies and yielded different results, so the estimated 68.9 percent "conversion rate" from experimentation to daily smoking has a margin of error (between 60.9 and 76.9 percent).

While it is natural to see some variation between surveys, it is interesting to note that United Kingdom respondents were consistently more likely to say they developed a habit compared to those from the other three countries. She said, "The government is refusing to introduce licensing for tobacco retailers, even though there is strong support for this both from the public and retailers".

Based on survey results from 4 different countries - including the United Kingdom - the findings highlight how addictive tobacco cigarettes are, and the importance of ensuring that stop smoking services are made available to help people quit. The company is also planning to lend support to the anti-smoking efforts of local United Kingdom governments in areas where smoking rates have spiked up. This tendency of nature works as the starting point for many which slowly makes them habitual to smoking and at the point when the person gets realized that he is not able to leave without it, the situation became hard for him to quit this habit immediately.
