Starting Smoking: Girls' Explanations of the Influence of Peers.
Lucas, Kevin; Lloyd, Barbara
Journal of Adolescence, v22 n5 p647-55 Oct 1999
Study surveys secondary school students (N=4,773) about five items concerning the circumstances of smoking initiation: age at first cigarette; source of supply; location of first smoke; persons present; and perceived degree of coercion. Although there was a highly significant gender difference on the item concerning age at first cigarette, with the average for boys lower than that for girls, the remaining items show no gender effects.
