Eng Course- Smoking Habits (Complete Guide)- Download Free PDF

Smoking is one of the primary public health co
ncerns in industrialized societies. In the
UK, where currently about 28 percent of men and 24 percent of women are smokers, the
White Paper on Tobacco “Smoking Kills” has recently been approved, aiming to provide a
set of interventions for reducing tobacco consumption. Since the majority of smokers
rst try
cigarettes when they are teenagers and youth smoking often persists into adulthood, teens are
the focus of many policy discussions. In 1996, the initiation rate of young smokers in the UK
was larger than the cessation rate in the adult po
pulation (Foulds, 1999). Current statistics
show that by the age of 11 one-third of children in the UK have experienced with smoking,
while two-thirds have done so by the age of 16 (ASH, 2005). Similar results are obtained
when consulting other data sources. For exam
ple, one of the most recent surveys conducted
among school children aged 11-16 in England, “The Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children
Survey”, showed that approximately 19 percent o
f survey participants were regular smokers
in 1997. In 1998, the O
ce of National Statistics survey found similar results among children
aged 11-15 years old who experienced with smoking. In this survey, young regular smokers
stated that they were smoking about an average of 65 cigarettes per week, and the majority
indicated that it would be di
cult to stop smoking, increasing this perception the longer had
they been regular smokers. In addition, risk attitudes toward smoking were also worrisome.
In particular, about 20-40 percent of young regular smokers endorsed the view that “smoking
is not really dangerous, it only harms people who smoke a lot”.
