One cigarette can make two-thirds of adults addicts

11 January 2018

New UK research has suggested that more than two-thirds of people who try a cigarette become daily smokers at some point in their lives.

The study was based on the data collected from the Global Data Exchange which consisted data of eight surveys which has been conducted since 2000. The team found that 60.3 per cent of respondents had tried a cigarette, and among those, 69 per cent said that they had progressed to daily smoking. The author of the study says that they had noticed a "remarkable hold" which a cigarette could establish after a single experience.

Prof Hajek added that it doesn't seem to be the case that e-cigarettes are as addictive as conventional cigarettes. The results of each survey were collated and used to calculate a conversion rate from ever trying a cigarette to ever smoking daily. He also stated that this is the first time where the link between trying the first cigarette and becoming a regular smoker presented in a large data set.
