Recidivism and Self-Cure of Smoking and Obesity
Schacter, Stanley
American Psychologist, v37 n4 p436-44 Apr 1982
Data indicate that addictive-appetitive disorders such as obesity, opiate use, and cigarette smoking are not (as most professionals believe) markedly resistant to long-term modification. Studies of nontherapeutic populations indicate that long-term self-cures of smoking, obesity, and drug use are relatively common events. (Author/GC)
