Abstract

The authors use data from the New Zealand Smoking Monitor to understand the barriers to cessation among young late-onset smokers (young adults who started smoking daily after turning 18). They conclude from their analysis that "the tendency not to use cessation aids, strong links between smoking and drinking and the social benefits of smoking may act as barriers to successful cessation among young late-onset smokers". They discuss the implications of these findings for policies and interventions.
