Wang, Min Qi
American Journal of Health Behavior, v25 n4 p418-25 Jul-Aug 2001
Examined data from adolescents who had completed the 1989 Teenage Attitudes and Practices Survey and who were re-interviewed in 1993 to determine social and environmental factors that influenced their smoking progression. Smoking behavior of best friends and smoking beliefs were consistent and significant factors in predicting progression from nonsmoking to regular or experimental smoking status. (SM)
