Why We Smoke
Peer pressure is a big reason that young people start smoking. Smoking is also higher in families where one or both parents smoke in the home. Some people smoke to relive stress and anxiety. The usual identified factors of smoking among youth and adults like lower education and income levels also are contributing factors. Young teens who are not active in sports or other programs will tend to “hang out” with like mined individuals which can put them at greater risk for smoking or drug use.
Lesbian, gay, bi, and trans (LGBT) communities smoke at much higher rates than the general population. Smoking rates in the general Canadian population have gone down significantly in the last 40 years to about 18%, while research suggests that smoking rates within LGBT communities remain at between 24% and 55%.
In a 2006 study 36% of LGBT people were smokers compared to just 15% of Toronto adults.
LGBT communities are subject to the same factors that result in smoking within the general population, as well as additional factors, such as higher levels of stress due to homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia, a culture of socializing in bars and clubs, lower health access and greater vulnerability of LGBT people to depression and alcohol use.
