A lot of teen smoking has to do with peer pressure and stress. Teens feel that they need an outlet and smoking provides that outlet. People also find smoking to be calming. I would compare it to people who eat when they are stressed or nervous.

Also, when your friends are doing something that you don't do, be it good or bad for you, and they pressure you about it by making fun of you, teasing you etc. it makes it all the more easy to start doing it to get them off your back. For most teens smoking is also something that their parents have told them is off limits so starting to smoke could also be a form of teenage rebellion or a form of proclaiming one's independence.

What keeps people smoking?

As most people take up smoking when they are under the age of 18, peer pressure plays a large part in children and teenagers taking up smoking.

Some people try smoking as a way to relieve stress or tension, or as a way to lose weight.
