Just a few cigarettes is all it takes for a teenager to get into the trap of smoking, shows a new american study.
According to the specialist from the Association of Child and Teenager Health, only a month after they started smoking, the young people experience the same symptoms of addiction as the adult smokers.
“Our research made obsolete the myth, that “a few smokes are harmless” . Not the years of smoking, but the ingredients are the factors, that lead to addiction. The inmatured organism is much more susceptible to nicotine and the other substances in the tobacco”, explained professor De Franca, one of the scientists, that conducted the research.
More than thousand kids aged between 12 and 16 years took part in the study.
:Fifty percent of the teenagers, that have smoked a few cigarettes per month, gradually begin to smoke more, because they feel the addiction”, the doctors explain.
Giving up cigarettes is one of the most important steps that you can do for your health. If you feel you can’t do it alone, there are some natural supplements to help you quit smoking.
