Lead researcher Professor Peter Hajek, from Queen Mary, said: "This is the first time that the remarkable hold that cigarettes can establish after a single experience has been documented from such a large set of data". Data from the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand found 60.3% of people had tried smoking and an estimated 68.9% of those progressed to a daily habit. During the same period, 19.3% of 18-to-24-year-olds used to smoke compared to 25.8% in 2010.
According to researchers at the Queen Mary University of London, trying out a single cigarette could raise the risk of taking up smoking as a habit for two thirds of the individuals. In 2007, a study of 1,246 sixth-grade students in six MA communities found 10% of youth who become addicted to cigarettes do so within two days of first inhaling and 25% are hooked within a month. However, the authors note that the study also has other limitations, including that the findings are based on respondents self-reporting information, meaning the resulting figures are only an estimate.
"Very few non-smokers who try e-cigarettes become daily vapers, while such a large proportion on non-smokers who try conventional cigarettes become daily smokers".

The drive was part of a four day drive in South Delhi where 2,755 smokers were challaned for smoking in public places. In the United Kingdom, only 19 percent of 11 to 15 years olds reported having tried a cigarette, according to 2016 National Health Service, and in the USA, only eight percent of high school students reported having smoked in the past 30 days. But similar to adults, that number decreased to 19.3 percent.
Public health minister Steve Brine said, "Britain is a world leader in tobacco control, and thanks to our tough action smoking rates in England are at an all-time low". According to her, authorities are "refusing" to introduce licensing for tobacco retailers, although both "the public and retailers" actively support this strategy. Commenting on the matter, an official said that around 95 percent of the challans have been issued to those found smoking at public places.
