Even smoking one cigarette is enough to get you addicted, so don't give in!
For those who think one cigarette will not make them addicted to it, here is a warning, it will.

As per a latest research, at least two-thirds of those who try cigarettes do eventually become addicted to them to an extent that they go on to smoke on a daily basis.

The sample subjects of the research included people from four countries including the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand. As per the results of the research, 68.9 per cent of those who tried smoking did eventually get addicted to it. Thus this research should act as a warning for those who wish to experience smoking even once. The research was based on data gathered by the Global Health Data Exchange

The results of the research that has been conducted by the researchers of the Queen Mary University of London, have been published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research. But the figures varied form country to country, a phenomenon that has yet not been explained by the research. In the United States, 52 per cent of the subjects of the study went on to become daily smokers while as the same percentage was 82 per cent in the UK. But even while the research would have its limitations, it does go on to establish an important fact that how even a single experience of smoking could lead to addiction.

This research can be an important one in establishing the fact that development of addictive behaviour begins with one small step and thus there is a very high chance of developing addiction even among those who might be of the belief that they can resist the addiction and want to merely experience it once.
