The Role of Smoking in the Lives of Low-Income Pregnant Adolescents: A Field Study.
Lawson, Erma Jean
Adolescence, v29 n113 p61-79 Spr 1994
Examined role of cigarette smoking in lives of low-income, pregnant adolescents (n=20). Findings indicated that subjects smoked to cope with increased weight gain; to deliver smaller infants which in turn would decrease duration of labor and reduce pain of delivery; and to establish identity separate from their parents' and peers' drug abuse.
