More than 60 percent who try a cigarette become daily smokers study says

The study which comes forward most recently is based on the data collected from UK, US, Australia and New Zealand in which around 60.3% people had tried smoking from which 68.9% contributed to the number of daily smokers afterwards.

Researchers at Queen Mary University of London found that 69 per cent of people who had ever tried a cigarette had gone on to become a daily smoker, even if only for a while. An average of 60 percent of the more than 200,000 respondents had smoked a cigarette - and almost 69 percent of the nicotine-curious eventually formed a daily habit.

Meanwhile around 2.9 million people in the United Kingdom were e-cigarette users in 2016, it said. As this study released Monday and performed by global researchers explained, the majority of them continued consuming tobacco right after they tried their first cigarette - even for a short period after. It's the first time when experimenting with cigarettes is linked to becoming a smoker on such a large scale.

The findings, which were published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research, are striking.

According to the scientists, this study highlights how important is to prevent people from smoking the very first cigarette.

Across the United Kingdom, more men are smokers than women, with 17.7% of men being current smokers compared to 14.1% of women.

In 2016, 15.5% of the adults from the United Kingdom smoked, down from 19.9% in 2010, according to the office for National Statistics.

According to the World Health Organization study, 27.1 percent of Turkish people smoked cigarettes in 2015, compared to 31.2 percent in 2010.

Deborah Arnott, chief executive of the charity Action on Smoking and Health, called for the greater government regulation of tobacco sales. She said, "The government is refusing to introduce licensing for tobacco retailers, even though there is strong support for this both from the public and retailers". Looking into the current record, Britain has become one of the leading countries in tobacco control, Steve Brine, the Public health minister said.
