It wouldn't be a good idea to use any results from here. This is an educational forum and consequently there isn't a broad range of people so you're results wont be fair or accurate.

She could be doing research for the number of 12-20 year olds that smoke for all you know - so it may be relevant. Although the reliability of the results may be questionable.

Yes but those that smoke are quite likely to be underachievers and therefore I don't think they'd be on here.

How do you know that? How do you know everyone here reaches their capabilities? I don't think i do and i don't smoke, so there goes that theory...

It's more likely. More people smoke if they are underachievers and I'm sure that's a fact.

Exactly, i may be and so may everyone else be lying. Which is why the reliability of the results is questionable.

People on here are generally too intelligent to be smokers, I think.

Well, except for at least one I can think of.

Yeah.

I mean, what kind of really intelligent person would want to give themself a high chance of having a painful premature death?

Why the hell do people start smoking nowadays?

I know someone who started smoking the other day but she's an idiot, she really is. The biggest idiot I know I think. I asked her if she wanted to die early and she said "Well, I'm screwed anyway".

Well, yes and no actually. There's obviously no link between intelligence and smoking but there is a certainly a link between social class and smoking. Lower class folks are more likely to smoke than upper class folks.

There is also a link between being from a lower class and "underachieving"

But, smoking per se has bugger all to do with "achieving stuff"
