Teenage smoking in 1996 represents nearly 28% of boys and 34% of girls. Today is 16% of boys and 13% of girls. Teenage smoking has fallen especially of teenage girls.

But what about smokers that remain till present? Are they dependent or simply addicted who can’t or don’t want to quit?

It is not the light smoker who wants to quit, many smokers have to do it, but the consumption of new smokers will rise again.

In 2002 studding nearly 8000 of smokers from four centuries, 90% of smokers agreed strongly with statement “If you do it again and again, you wouldn’t have started smoking.” I have never met a smoker who lived in hope that their children would start smoking, even as adults will do.

The only nations which have not are tobacco states such as: Haiti, Cuba, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Indonesia still assist for smoking promotion at music festivals.
