National Smoking Control Campaign 2010
Date:5/30/2010

Several innovative programmes have been planned for the campaign. A key highlight is the novel Great Audio Experience, the first-of-its-kind in Singapore, held to commemorate World No Tobacco Day 2010.

Singapore (Vocus), May 30, 2010 -- Fewer Secondary one to four youths in Singapore are lighting up. Latest statistics from the Students' Health Survey (SHS) 2009 signal a downward trend in youth smoking, with the proportion of youth who had ever tried smoking, including one or two puffs, declining from 26% in 2000 to 19% in 2006 and 16% last year.

The SHS, which surveyed about 3,000 Secondary one to four students in Singapore between July to November 2009, also recorded a decline in the percentage of youths who had smoked at least one day in the last 30 days from 9% in 2006 to 6% in 2009. 39% of youths however, still underestimated the addictive nature of smoking and believed that they could quit any time.

Whilst smoking prevalence has decreased, the intention to quit among those who smoked cut a worrying figure, as 58% of lower level students and 53% of upper level students who smoked revealed that they had no intention to quit smoking.


Key Influencers in Smoking Behaviour

Social influencers play a part in a youth's uptake of smoking, with statistics clearly indicating that youths who had either a parent, sibling or friend who smoked, were more likely to pick up the habit. More than 50% of smokers had at least one parent who smoked. Similarly, 38% of smokers had at least one sibling who smoked and 90% had at least one close friend who smoked.
