...Among U.S. Young Adults.

This study assessed correlates of smoking-related intentions related to graphic health warning labels (HWLs) among current cigarette smokers and nonsmokers in a national sample of U.S. young adults aged 18-34. Twenty-two percent of the young adults were current cigarette smokers. Among current smokers, intending to quit within the next 6 months was correlated with intention resulting from graphic HWLs. Hispanic ethnicity and intention to quit within 30 days were strong correlates of intention in light, nondaily, and self-identified social/occasional smokers.This study supports previous findings that graphic HWLs play an important role in preventing smoking, in addition to encouraging cessation in young adults.
