Christen, Arden G.; Glover, Elbert D.
Journal of Drug Education, v13 n1 p95-102 1983
Studied factors to help dentists understand smoking in patients. Dental patients (N=57) attended "quit smoking" clinics and were given the Horn Smoker's Self-Test which elicits information on factors relating to smoking. The most important functions cigarettes serve, according to smokers, were to satisfy craving, act as a crutch, and provide pleasurable relaxation. (Author/JAC)
