American Journal of Public Health, v92 n1 p71-74 Jan 2002
Investigated whether age at initiation of regular smoking and likelihood of quitting smoking through age 35 years would differ among younger and older women. Data from annual population-based surveys of residents of Geneva, Switzerland, indicated that young female smokers had a higher propensity to quit than older women. There were no differences by age of smoking initiation. (SM)
