Negative urgency and ad-libitum smoking topography.
Do work-place smoking bans cause smokers to smoke "harder"? Results from a naturalistic observational study.
Whether smokers outside buildings with work-place smoking bans smoke "harder" than those smoking in social settings is investigated, and the individual and public health benefits of reduced smoking frequency engendered by work- place smoking bans may be lessened by policies which allow smokers to take smoking breaks.
When does cigarette fading increase the likelihood of future cessation?

Cigarette fading increases cessation among moderate to heavy smokers who become light smokers and, if not, whether it can be maintained.
Some smokers may compromise between continuing to smoke and quitting by limiting or restraining the amount that they smoke. While the effects of smoking restraint on behavior are unknown, eating
Sharing the blame: smoking experimentation and future smoking-attributable mortality due to Joe Camel and Marlboro advertising and promotions
The authors' analysis provides a reasonable first estimate at sharing the blame for the long-term health consequences of smoking among the major brands that encourage adolescents to start smoking.
A Novel Approach for Cigarette Smoke-Induced Differential Gene Expression in Blood Cells from Monozygotic Twin Pairs
Cigarette smoke is a well known source of chemical carcinogens and comprises a complex mixture of over sixty proven, probable and possible carcinogenic agents. Cigarette smoking alone is directly
A systematic review and analysis of data reduction techniques for the CReSS smoking topography device
A systematic review and analysis of data reduction techniques for the CReSS smoking topography device and a review of existing techniques and new approaches are presented.
Marshaling the evidence for greater regulation and control of tobacco products: A call for action
This article will make four recommendations to help the United States capitalize on momentous changes in the health care system and in public policy regulating the use and marketing of tobacco products.


Puff volume increases when lownicotine cigarettes are smoked
Encouraging the smoking of low-nicotine cigarettes may increase exposure to combustion products and not appreciably decrease exposure to nicotine, since the smokers increased the size of their puffs in response to the decreased nicotine yield.
Assessment of smoking behaviour and ventilation with cigarettes of differing nicotine yields.
While smoking behaviour varied considerably between the various subjects only small differences were seen between the different cigarette types in puff volume and duration and shape of the puff profile, and neither these, nor the changes in alveolar carbon monoxide, were closely related to ventilatory measurements.
Cigarette desirability and nicotine preference in smokers
Puffing Patterns of Smokers Switching to Low-Yield Cigarettes: A Controlled Cross-over Study on Diurnal Changes in Behaviour
In this brand-switching study the daily puffing behavior was investigated and nicotine exposure was measured in habitual smokers.
Smoking behavior and tobacco smoke intake: Response of smokers to shortened cigarettes
The response of four cigarette smokers to full‐length and three different types of half‐length cigarettes was examined in a naturalistic laboratory environment and demonstrates that smokers make complex adjustments in their smoking behavior in response to changes in cigarette length.
Inhaled smoke volume, puffing indices and carbon monoxide uptake in asymptomatic cigarette smokers.
Nine asymptomatic smokers each smoked one cigarette of their usual brand on four separate occasions and the puffing indices showed no significant intra-subject difference in any index from one visit to another.
Effects of smoke deprivation interval on puff topography
It is concluded that smokers do not increase puff volume after long deprivation intervals up to 300 minutes, but they may decrease puff volumes after short (3 minutes) deprivation intervals when puff number and spacing cannot be used as compensatory mechanisms.
Regulation of tobacco smoke intake with paced cigarette presentation
Response and acclimatisation of symptomless smokers on changing to a low tar, low nicotine cigarette.
It is concluded that when smokers are switched to a low tar, low nicotine cigarette the puff volume increases but there is no change in the inhaled smoke volume or daily consumption.
