Abstract This article describes recent theoretical developments and empirical findings regarding the role of negative affect (NA) and emotion regulation in nicotine dependence and smoking cessation. It begins with a review of affect-based models of addiction that address conditioning, affect motivational, and neurobiological mechanisms and then describes the role of NA and emotion regulation in the initiation and maintenance of cigarette smoking. Next, the role of emotion regulation, coping… Expand
Development of an acceptance-based coping intervention for alcohol dependence relapse prevention.
TLDR
It is concluded that this acceptance-based intervention seems feasible and holds promise for improving affect and reducing relapse in alcohol-dependent individuals, warranting further research. Expand
The role of emotional nonacceptance in the relation between depression and recent cigarette smoking.
TLDR
Depression was the only dimension of emotion dysregulation uniquely associated with recent smoking and mediated the relationship between depression and recent smoking, and targeting emotional nonacceptance may improve smoking cessation treatments for depressed individuals. Expand
Emotion dysregulation and smoking among treatment-seeking smokers.
TLDR
The emotion dysregulation global construct and sub facets in relation to negative affect reduction expectancies, coping motives, perceived barriers for quitting, and the severity of problems experienced during quit attempts were examined. Expand

TLDR
Preliminary support is provided that emotion regulation strategies may be associated with motivational correlates of smoking as well as actual smoking behavior among depressed smokers. Expand
Treating depressed and anxious smokers in smoking cessation programs.
TLDR
A brief review of the literature on treating depressed and anxious smokers in smoking cessation programs focuses on both disorders, and suggests a sensible time for an aggressive approach to this health promotion effort is now. Expand
The association between changes in alternative reinforcers and short-term smoking cessation.
TLDR
The results of this study support continued examination of Behavioral Economic Theory in understanding adult smoking cessation in order to inform future treatments and guidelines. Expand
Coping with Cigarette Cravings: Comparison of Suppression Versus Mindfulness-Based Strategies
Mindfulness- and acceptance-based therapies have been explored within the context of addiction treatment, with some preliminary success. The current empirical study investigated the effectiveness ofExpand
Mindfulness and Emotion Regulation
In this chapter, we begin to explore the wealth of research and theory on the implications of mindfulness for emotional experience by examining a variety of models of mindfulness and how they informExpand
Modeling naturalistic craving, withdrawal, and affect during early nicotine abstinence: A pilot ecological momentary assessment study.
TLDR
The association between withdrawal/NA and craving decreased over early abstinence, whereas the reverse was observed for PA, which helps to elucidate the role of PA in nicotine abstinence by demonstrating its independent association with nicotine craving over and above withdrawal/ NA. Expand
The role of mindfulness skills in terms of distress tolerance: a pilot test among adult daily smokers.
TLDR
Findings suggest that mindfulness-based approaches to smoking cessation may be effective because of improvements in distress tolerance, and future prospective and laboratory-based studies are needed to better understand the mindfulness-distress tolerance link among smokers. Expand

Implications for smoking cessation treatment are discussed in the areas of the use of pharmacologic agents in the reduction of nicotine withdrawal symptoms; and the long-term maintenance of smoking abstinence versus relapse. Expand
Anxiety sensitivity: relationship to negative affect smoking and smoking cessation in smokers with past major depressive disorder.
TLDR
Results suggest that smokers with heightened levels of AS may smoke more often to manage negative moods and may be less able to tolerate early withdrawal symptoms, specifically during early stages of a quit attempt. Expand
The smoking problem: a review of the research and theory in behavioral risk modification.
TLDR
Findings and theoretical implications of studies concerned with initiation, maintenance, and therapy of cigarette smoking in children and adults are reviewed, and a hypothesis is presented to account for the development of craving conditioned to internal and external cues. Expand

TLDR
Results supported both models, but the most potent predictor of outcome was postquit negative affect, which accounted for much of the predictive validity of traditional measures of nicotine dependence. Expand

TLDR
Gender differences in personality-smoking linkages, adolescent negative affectivity, the unique contributions of survey and diary methods, and the promise of targeted preventive interventions such as affect regulation training are discussed. Expand

TLDR
The role of exposure to internal, largely emotional cues, as a way to enhance resilience to cues for relapse in individuals with SUDs is emphasized. Expand

TLDR
It is argued that contextual mediator-moderator approaches hold greater potential for elucidating complex associations between NA and stress and smoking and for suggesting mechanisms underlying links between stress and NA and smoking. Expand
