What was the average age that people began to smoke?
It's for extra credit in a class
i had my first cigarette at 11 :P btw i dont smoke. i think 13 to 14 is the average age by which most kids have tried it.
Most kids have tried by the age of 12 or 13 unfortunately. :0(
Most people I know that smoke started around 12-14 years old. I had my first cigarette when I was 12. I'm guessing the average is somewhere around there.
I would say don't smoke at all from personal experience from other people
teen ages !!! that is from 13 - 19 ! it's very bad boys think that they're man if they smoke like men !! ha
Usually at the onset of puberty. This is also when they experiment with drugs like marijuana and booze (which is usually earlier due to the availability of alcohol in the house).
The average age they try a cigarette is in their young teens, just for curiosity. When they start having a smoking addiction is during their late teens, when they use it to help them relax after working or something.
I was 14 when I began smoking cigs. 13 I smoked my first joint.
