Evaluation of a behavioral measure of risk taking: the Balloon Analogue Risk Task (BART).
The BART evidenced sound experimental properties, and riskiness on the BART was correlated with scores on measures of sensation seeking, impulsivity, and deficiencies in behavioral constraint, indicating that the BART may be a useful tool in the assessment of risk taking.
Distress tolerance and duration of past smoking cessation attempts.
Immediate relapsers were characterized by higher baseline levels of affective vulnerability, by greater levels of dysphoria and urge to smoke after 12 hr of nicotine deprivation, and by less task persistence on the stressors, suggesting that these may be risk factors for early lapse in the context of quitting smoking.
The Balloon Analogue Risk Task (BART) differentiates smokers and nonsmokers.
Results indicate that behavior on the BART, and not the BGT, was related to smoking status, and only the Sensation Seeking total score and the BART score contributed uniquely to the differentiation of smokers and nonsmokers.

The authors developed an automatic response procedure, in which respondents state at the beginning of each trial how many risks they wish to take and then observe the sequence of events unfold, which yields unbiased statistics whereas maintaining the BART's predictive validity of substance use is maintained.
