Journal of Drug Education, v27 n3 p277-91 1997
Provides evidence that self-esteem is associated with the likelihood of smoking among African-American children. Results based on a sample of 1,256 children indicate that those lowest in self-esteem, especially girls, were twice as likely to have ever smoked as those with the highest levels of self-esteem.
