Prevalence and Smoking Behavior Characteristics of Nonselected Smokers With Childhood and/or Adult Self-Reported ADHD Symptoms in a Smoking-Cessation Program

Background: ADHD involves impairing core symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity in children (childhood ADHD = CH) that may persist in adulthood (adult ADHD = AD). Conflicting findings

Changing relationships between smoking and psychiatric disorders across twentieth century birth cohorts: clinical and research implications

TLDR
It is found that the prevalence of smoking decreased across the five birth cohorts, but associations of smoking with drug and AUDs, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder and antisocial personality disorder, each increased monotonically in more recently born cohorts, even after adjusting for concurrent demographic and socioeconomic changes.

Adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and nicotine use: a qualitative study of patient perceptions

TLDR
Patients with ADHD and comorbid tobacco use had different views about the link between cigarette smoking and ADHD, and motivations for nicotine use were also related to self-image, desire to belong to a peer-group, and a drive to undermine perceived social norms.

Smoking behavior characteristics of non-selected smokers with childhood attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) history: a systematic review and meta-analysis

TLDR
A clinically important link between CH and tobacco smoking in adolescence but not later in life is illustrated, as only two studies included participants with a mean age below 20 years.

Using parallel latent growth curve models to better understand co-morbidity in two randomized clinical trials: Smoking with co-morbid ADHD and co-morbid SUD

by Mary Rose Mamey, Ph.D. Washington State University December 2015 Chair: G. Leonard Burns This study investigated relationships between cigarette smoking and ADHD (Study A) and cigarette smoking

The WHO Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale: Reliability and Validity of the Korean Version

TLDR
A self-report scale of adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, the World Health Organization (WHO) Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS) was developed and demonstrated good psychometric properties and it is expected that this scale would be helpful in clinical settings and research in Korea.

No increase in long-term risk for nicotine use disorders after treatment with methylphenidate in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD): evidence from a non-randomised retrospective study

TLDR
There may be a beneficial effect of MPH on delay of onset for continuous nicotine consumption in ADHD patients, and limited evidence due to the non-randomised nature of the study is given that MPH does not induce SUD-N.

Methylphenidate increases cigarette smoking

TLDR
The results of this experiment suggest that methylphenidate, like d-amphetamine, increases rates of cigarette smoking.

Effects of smoking abstinence on adult smokers with and without attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: results of a preliminary study

TLDR
This preliminary study is the first to systematically evaluate the effects of acute smoking abstinence in adult smokers diagnosed with ADHD and shows that individuals with the disorder may smoke at higher rates due to greater worsening of attention and response inhibition after abstinence.

ADHD is associated with early initiation of cigarette smoking in children and adolescents.

OBJECTIVE The association between attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and cigarette smoking in children and adolescents was evaluated. METHOD Subjects were 6- to 17-year-old boys with

Influence of Methylphenidate Treatment on Smoking Behavior in Adolescent Girls With Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity and Borderline Personality Disorders

TLDR
Methylphenidate may attenuate smoking behavior in female adolescent smokers with ADHD/BPD and no significant correlation was found between changes in the ADHD-RS and the FTND after MPH treatment.

The reinforcing effects of nicotine and stimulant medication in the everyday lives of adult smokers with ADHD: A preliminary examination.

TLDR
The findings suggest that smokers with ADHD experience nicotine-related reductions in ADHD symptoms during their everyday lives.

Association between smoking and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptoms in a population-based sample of young adults.

TLDR
Self-reported ADHD symptoms were found to be associated with adult smoking outcome variables in this nationally representative sample of young adults, providing further evidence of a likely link between ADHD symptoms and risk for tobacco use.

Effects of transdermal nicotine on symptoms, moods, and cardiovascular activity in the everyday lives of smokers and nonsmokers with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

TLDR
The results support the self-medication hypothesis for nicotine in adults with ADHD and suggest that smoking cessation and prevention efforts for individuals with ADHD will need to address both the symptom reducing and mood enhancing effects of nicotine.

Smoking withdrawal symptoms are more severe among smokers with ADHD and independent of ADHD symptom change: results from a 12-day contingency-managed abstinence trial.

TLDR
The results of this study suggest that smokers with ADHD, and ADHD females in particular, experience greater withdrawal severity during early abstinence-independent of effects on ADHD symptoms, and suggest that smoking cessation interventions targeted at smoker with ADHD should address their more severe withdrawal symptoms following quitting.
