Abstract Rationale: Impulsivity is implicated in drug dependence. Recent studies show problems with alcohol and opioid dependence are associated with rapid discounting of the value of delayed outcomes. Furthermore, discounting may be particularly steep for the drug of dependence. Objectives: We determined if these findings could be extended to the behavior of cigarette smokers. In particular, we compared the discounting of hypothetical monetary outcomes by current, never, and ex-smokers of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Impulsivity and cigarette smoking: discounting of monetary and consumable outcomes in current and non-smokers
TLDR
This result, together with the finding that cross-commodity discounting rates were correlated within subjects, suggests that delay discounting is a trait that extends across domains.
Mixture models of delay discounting and smoking behavior
TLDR
The results inform the interpretation of steep discounting among smokers and suggest that treatment approaches could be tailored to the type of discounting behavior that smokers exhibit.
Cigarette demand and delayed reward discounting in nicotine-dependent individuals with schizophrenia and controls: an initial study
TLDR
These results provide further evidence of higher incentive value of cigarettes among SS individuals, but not greater impulsivity, as measured by discounting.
Effects of cigarette smoking status on delay discounting in schizophrenia and healthy controls.
Temporal discounting and smoking cessation: choice consistency predicts nicotine abstinence in treatment-seeking smokers.
TLDR
The data from treatment-seeking smokers do not support the pharmacological hypothesis of pronounced reversible changes in discounting behavior and brain activity, and Behavioral data rather suggest that differences between current and ex-smokers might be due to selection.
Delay discounting in e-cigarette users, current and former smokers
Delay discounting predicts cigarette smoking in a laboratory model of abstinence reinforcement
TLDR
The nicotine patch decreased negative affect, but it did not significantly affect delay discounting or smoking after a period of deprivation, but contingencies for abstinence significantly decreased smoking.

Discounting of delayed rewards in opioid-dependent outpatients: exponential or hyperbolic discounting functions?
TLDR
Delayed heroin rewards were discounted at a significantly higher rate than were delayed monetary rewards and the hyperbolic function produced significantly higher R2 values and significantly lower sums of squared error values.
Heroin addicts have higher discount rates for delayed rewards than non-drug-using controls.
TLDR
The results lend external validity to the delay-discounting rate as a measure of impulsiveness, a characteristic associated with substance abuse, in heroin addicts and age-matched controls.
Impulsive and self-control choices in opioid-dependent patients and non-drug-using control participants: drug and monetary rewards.
TLDR
Opioid-dependent participants discounted delayed monetary rewards significantly more than did non-drug-using participants, and opioid-dependent Participants discounted delayed heroin significantly more more than delayed money.
Hyperbolic temporal discounting in social drinkers and problem drinkers.
TLDR
Two studies compared participants, distinguished by their typical alcohol consumption, on the degree to which they discounted the value of delayed, hypothetical amounts of money, finding that a hyperbolic function described temporal discounting more accurately than an exponential function.
Symptoms of tobacco withdrawal. A replication and extension.
TLDR
Anger, anxiety, craving, difficulty concentrating, hunger, impatience, and restlessness were the most prominent symptoms of tobacco withdrawal, and nicotine gum decreased most symptoms, including craving and hunger but not weight.
Polydrug abuse in heroin addicts: a behavioral economic analysis.
TLDR
Hypothetical choices in this hypothetical situation were correlated with urinalysis results, demonstrating initial validity of this methodology and may be useful for understanding the phenomenon of polydrug abuse.
An experimental comparison of three different schedules of reinforcement of drug abstinence using cigarette smoking as an exemplar.
TLDR
People in the progressive group were significantly less likely to resume smoking when they became abstinent than participants in the other groups and those in the fixed group achieved greater mean levels of abstinence.
Adolescent drug use and psychological health. A longitudinal inquiry.
TLDR
Adolescents who had engaged in some drug experimentation were the best-adjusted in the sample, and those who used drugs frequently were maladjusted, showing a distinct personality syndrome marked by interpersonal alienation, poor impulse control, and manifest emotional distress.
Discounting of Delayed Rewards: A Life-Span Comparison
In this study, children, young adults, and older adults chose between immediate and delayed hypothetical monetary rewards The amount of the delayed reward was held constant while its delay was varied
