Mood and interpersonal functioning in heavy smokers
Lyvers, Michael, Thorberg, Fred A., Dobie, A., Huang, J., & Reginald, P. (2008) Mood and interpersonal functioning in heavy smokers. Journal of Substance Use, 13(5), pp. 308-318.
Male and female adult heavy smokers (n = 96) and non-smokers (n = 123) were compared on the Depression Anxiety Stress Scales (DASS), Adult Attachment Scale (AAS), Fear of Intimacy Scale (FIS), Negative Mood Regulation (NMR) Scale and Affect Intensity Measure (AIM). Compared with non-smokers, smokers scored significantly higher on DASS-Stress, DASS-Anxiety, and DASS-Depression, and significantly lower on NMR, AAS-Depend and AAS-Close. Smokers also scored marginally higher on FIS. Results suggest mood and relationship dysfunction in smokers, similar to the findings of a previous investigation of detoxified inpatients undergoing treatment for substance (alcohol, heroin, or methamphetamine) dependence.
