Cigarette smoking is a severe health burden being related to a number of chronic diseases. Frequently, smokers report about sleep problems. Sleep disturbance, in turn, has been demonstrated to be involved in the pathophysiology of several disorders related to smoking and may be relevant for the pathophysiology of nicotine dependence. Therefore, determining the frequency of sleep disturbance in otherwise healthy smokers and its association with degree of nicotine dependence is highly relevant…

Anxiety sensitivity and daily cigarette smoking in relation to sleep disturbances in treatment-seeking smokers

Assessing the main and interactive effects of AS and cigarettes/day on sleep quality among smokers indicated that AS was significantly correlated with greater disturbance in sleep duration, subjective sleep quality, sleep onset latency, sleep disturbance, daytime dysfunction, and sleep medication use.

Severity of Nicotine Addiction and Disruptions in Sleep Mediated by Early Awakenings.

Findings suggest that early awakening may be the mechanism responsible for the association between nicotine addiction severity and poor sleep outcomes of shorter sleep duration and excessive daytime sleepiness.

Smoking, being evening-type and having poor mental health may all be correlated in students attending Japanese university and medical training schools.

Sleep changes in smokers before, during and 3 months after nicotine withdrawal

Impairments of sleep during the withdrawal phase may reflect more severe nicotine dependence and may contribute to earlier relapse into smoking behaviours.

The studies that link sleep with cigarette smoking, and the factors that modulate these causal relationships, are extended and compared between smokers and non-smokers are explored.

The impact of cigarette smoking on the quality of sleep in Polish men

The dose effect was identified, which correlated more cigarettes men smoked per day with lower sleep quality, and men who were heavy smokers also exhibited the longest sleepless time and highest rate of limb movements per hour of sleep.

Does smoking impair sleep hygiene?

The results suggest that smoking by itself is not associated with poor sleep hygiene or sleep quality, and it can be concluded that worse SHI and quality of sleep negatively affect QoL, depression, and anxiety in smokers.



The relation between cigarette smoking and sleep disturbance.

Sleep disturbance may be more prevalent among smokers due to the stimulant effects of nicotine, nightly withdrawal, an increased prevalence of sleep disordered breathing relative to nonsmokers, and/or an association with psychological disturbance.

Association between sleep quality and smoking in Japanese civil servants

Sleep quality is affected not only by smoking but also by the process of smoking cessation in men, so a special attention should be paid to smoking habits in dealing with poor sleep quality.

The Relation Between Smoking and Sleep: The Influence of Smoking Level, Health, and Psychological Variables

After controlling for demographic, health, psychological, and behavioral variables, light smoking (< 15 cigarettes per day), but not heavier smoking, was associated with self-reported chronic insomnia and reduced sleep diary total sleep time and time in bed.

The results of this study show that cigarette smoking is independently associated with disturbances in sleep architecture, including a longer latency to sleep onset and a shift toward lighter stages of sleep.

Chronic insomnia but not poor sleep was associated with a higher risk for diabetes and objective sleep duration may predict cardiometabolic morbidity of chronic insomnia, the medical impact of which has been underestimated.
