Just One Puff Make Teenagers Addict

A study conducted by Cancer Research UK says 'Teens who tried just one cigarette are twice as likely as those who have never tried it to take up smoking' //.Again after 3 years it was proved true by another study.

Cancer Research UK said anti-smoking campaigns should focus on preventing children trying even one cigarette. In a study with 2000 teens, it was found around 14% of 11-year olds and 62% of 15-year olds have smoked a cigarette. From about 36 London schools youngsters were picked every year from the age of 11 to 16.

‘Sleeper effect’ could be explained in manners as below: Nicotine in cigarette may start pathways in the brain cells so increasing the chance to start smoking in response to other triggers, say stress.

In contrast, one puff may also create fear of being caught or insecurity about how to smoke.

Dr Jennifer Fidler, a researcher in psychology at the UK health behaviour unit of cancer research in London explained that past smoking behaviour only predicts future behaviour.

More efforts should be made to focus on pre-secondary school children. It was really shocking that nicotine receptors gets conditioned and triggers for a second puff when parents smoke in front of their children, and there is evidence to show that's an effect of nicotine conditioning as well. I was found that children who smoke a cigarette at the age of 11 may be more likely to take up smoking within the next few years.
