Abstract

Active smoking is an increasing problem amongst U.K. teenagers. The smoking habits of a cohort of 14-16-year-olds were determined and the associationbetween regular active smoking and domestic and social factors investigated. Current smoking habits of a cohort of 2289 14-16-year-olds were assessed using a simple postal questionnaire. Data concerning potential factors associated with active smoking were collected from questionnaire completed by parents. Nine hundred and sixty-nine (44.8%) children admitted to having smoked at some time, with 562 (30.0%) having smoked in the previous 12 months. Three hundred and six (14.1%) children were regular smokers and 158 (51.6% of regular smokers, 7.3% of total cohort) smoked daily. Age, number of other children in the household, parental smoking, smoking sibling(s) and living in asingle parent household were all independently associated with regular smoking. Regular smoking was a significant problem amongst this cohort of teenagers. Living with other smokers, age, household size and living with one parentall predicted a regular smoking habit.
