Patterns of Use

Ninety-nine percent of daily tobacco users try their first cigarette before they turn 27. Understanding the population-level impacts and individual-level patterns of use are at the core of addressing the tobacco epidemic. Whether it is the complexity of what happens from the time a person tries a tobacco product, becomes addicted, and wants to quit or how perceptions of the harm of new tobacco products are tied to behaviors such as light and intermittent use, our aim is to share the latest research findings to inform strategies that others can apply to end tobacco use for good.
