'570 children a day' start smoking

About 207,000 11 to 15-year-olds take up smoking every year in the UK, a charity has warned.

Cancer Research UK said government figures suggested 570 children smoked for the first time every day.

Kids won't switch to ecigs. The whole reason they smoke to begin with is peer pressure and/or an attempt to look cool, or obtain their bad boy image whilst being good enough to leave pensioners handbags on their rightful arms.

Not sure sucking on a mod will do their streetcred any good, lol.

Not to mention the outlay. I know you can pick up cheap kits now, but most of the kids I used to teach were getting their baccy on the 'black market' and probably raided their piggy banks or group bought a pouch or a packet. I dunno how they can even afford that!
