This book explores how young people conceptualise addiction to smoking and, the relationship between young people's addiction beliefs and intentions to smoke cigarettes. Addiction to smoking is a major health problem, not just for adults, but also for young smokers, up to 60% of whom are dependent on nicotine. However, anti-smoking prevention efforts targeted at young people generally emphasise ill-health effects and little attention is paid to addiction education which is generally considered relevant only to adult smoking and cessation efforts. As a consequence, young people appear to have many misconceptions and unrealistic ideas about addiction, which possibly influence their initial decisions to take up smoking. Understanding these conceptions is important for anti-smoking education and may assist in the development of primary prevention and cessation intervention strategies targeted at youth populations.
