Most Regret Ever Starting Smoking

July 24, 2012   The YouGov survey of 4099 (including 1746 current and   ex-smokers) men and women in the UK also showed that over three quarters   of these smokers (77 per cent) took up smoking regularly when they were still only teenagers – some as young as 13. A third chose to smoke the same brand of cigarettes as their family and friends when they first started buying a specific brand regularly. This data adds to the growing evidence of support behind Cancer Research UK’s campaign, The Answer is Plain, to remove all glitzy, glamorous branding from cigarette packets while keeping the health warnings.
