  • Description:
    FACTSYoung bodies are more sensitive to nicotine, and youth become addicted more quickly than adults. Even social smoking once or twice a month puts teens at serious risk for nicotine addiction that will keep them smoking longer and increase their chances of getting a serious disease.

    Most young smokers already show signs of damage to their hearts and blood vessels. One out of three teens who continue to smoke regularly will die prematurely—an average of 13 years earlier than their peers—because of smoking. Smokeless tobacco products also cause nicotine addiction.
