A recent study found that children between the ages of 12 and 17 are more likely to light up if their parents smoke too.

Smokers should be aware of this study which revealed that the longer a child is exposed to a parent who smokes, the greater the chances are that the child will become a smoker too.

It is difficult to keep a child from smoking if they have seen one or both parents smoking. It is important to mention that the study was used to find out if children exposed to smokers would start smoking, not that they definitely would start smoking if their parents smoked.
