TLDR
Results indicated that cue-evoked craving in response to stressful imagery, and to a lesser extent, in vivo smoking cues, significantly predicted smoking behavior during the week following testing, however, this predictive relationship was absent upon controlling for reactivity to neutral cues. Expand
