    Over two-thirds of people who try their first cigarette go on to become daily smokers, at least temporarily, a study suggests. The finding from over 2,15,000 survey respondents provides support for prioritising efforts to reduce cigarette experimentation among adolescents, researchers 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,” said Professor Peter Hajek from Queen Mary University of London.
