25% of Somalis in MN smoke cigs


Nothing is ever yours, it's only your turn.
Modeled after validated state and national tobacco use surveys, the survey was adapted for Somalis and administered to ethnically Somali adults (N=392) from 25 neighborhood clusters in Minnesota. Participants were chosen through probability proportional to size and multistage random sampling methods.

Estimated prevalence for cigarette use among Somalis was 24% (44% among men, 4% among women). Ever users were significantly more likely to be men, have attended college, and have friends who used cigarettes (p<0.0001). Belief in Islamic prohibition of tobacco was protective and affected current use and future intention to use tobacco (p<0.0001). The majority of Somali smokers were unwilling to use current cessation programs.
Fenty with cigs in the morning :ahh::lawd:

They need to stop all drugs.

I know somalis who are normal people, that just start casually smoking habitually. They had no need to, but they do it anyway. A cursed people.
Only idiots or people suffering from depression/suicide smoke cigarettes. Today everyone on earth knows about the negative side effects.

If you smoke it moderately it's ok (I'm not a smoker). Excessive smoking is what causes issues relating to health problems same as drinking
As a people we should drop cigarettes and khat....it's not good for us.

We should be dealing with marijuana :russsmug:

It's sustainable and the crop can be used for multiple different functions, and the geetho would probably cool down many hot heads.:mjhaps:
Don't give it to people with history of mental illness though :whoa:
