Teen smoking an 'epidemic,' new report finds

Smoking among America's youth has reached epidemic proportions, starting them on the path to a lifetime of addiction, the U.S. surgeon general's office said in its first report on youth smoking since 1994.   

Almost one in five high school-aged teens smokes, down from earlier decades, but the rate of decline has slowed, the report said. Because few high school smokers are able to quit, some 80 percent will continue to smoke as adults, according to the report released on Thursday.
