Both nicotine and various non-nicotine smoking factors are believed to contribute to tobacco addiction but their relative roles remain incompletely understood. This study aimed to help clarify these roles by examining acute interactions between nicotine and denicotinized tobacco (DT). During two randomized blinded sessions, the effects of a quick-release 4 mg nicotine lozenge (NL) versus placebo lozenge (PL) on the subjective and behavioural responses to DT were examined in 27 (14 men… Expand
The effects of alcohol on responses to nicotine-containing and denicotinized cigarettes in dependent and nondaily smokers.
TLDR
Findings suggest that nicotine may be critical to the drinking-smoking relationship in DDS, but that nonnicotine smoking factors may be more important in NNS. Expand
The effect of snus on alcohol-related cigarette administration in dependent and non-dependent smokers
TLDR
Findings raise the possibility that different processes mediate alcohol and cigarette co-use in NNS and DDS and suggest that snus may be effective in reducing alcohol-related cigarette use in DDS specifically. Expand
The effects of nicotine content information on subjective and behavioural responses to nicotine-containing and denicotinized cigarettes
TLDR
The findings suggest that nicotine dose expectancy can affect both subjective and behavioural indices of smoking reinforcement but that the satisfying and stimulating aspects of smoking are related to actual nicotine administration. Expand
The impact of anticipated and unanticipated smoking opportunities on cigarette smoking and nicotine lozenge responses.
TLDR
Findings suggest that unexpected smoking opportunities may be more appealing than expected ones regardless of perceived or actual acute NRT use. Expand
Quit Intentions Moderate Subjective and Physiological Responses to Acute Nicotine Replacement Therapy Administration in Dependent Smokers
TLDR
Nicotine administration and expectancy were found to interact to reduce craving in quitting motivated but not in unmotivated smokers, suggesting that pharmacological and psychological factors may be necessary for nicotine replacement therapy to impact craving in smokers who plan to quit. Expand
Reduced Nicotine Cigarettes: Smoking Behavior and Biomarkers of Exposure among Smokers Not Intending to Quit
TLDR
The findings provide little evidence of compensatory smoking of Quest cigarettes, with no increases in exhaled breath carbon monoxide levels, smoking intensity, or levels of 1-hydroxypyrene across study periods. Expand
Sex Differences in Subjective Responses To Moderate Versus Very Low Nicotine Content Cigarettes
TLDR
The results with research cigarettes are similar to other studies with carefully dosed nicotine administration by other means, supporting the notion that women, relative to men, are less sensitive to pharmacological factors and more sensitive to nonpharmacological factors in acute cigarette smoking. Expand
Nicotine effects on associative learning in human non-smokers
TLDR
It is indicated that nicotine can enhance incidental associative learning, a mechanism that may promote the formation of smoking-associated stimuli and cue-controlled drug-taking. Expand
of Exposure among Smokers Not Intending to Quit Reduced Nicotine Cigarettes: Smoking Behavior and Biomarkers
TLDR
The findings provide little evidence of compensatory smoking of Quest cigarettes, with no increases in exhaled breath carbon monoxide levels, smoking intensity, or levels of 1-hydroxypyrene across study periods. Expand
The acute effects of tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption on video-lottery terminal gambling
TLDR
Findings suggest that both alcohol and nicotine-containing tobacco may acutely increase the propensity to gamble using VLTs, but they may do so through separate processes. Expand

The effects of nicotine, denicotinized tobacco, and nicotine-containing tobacco on cigarette craving, withdrawal, and self-administration in male and female smokers
TLDR
It is suggested that DT is effective in acutely reducing many smoking abstinence symptoms, especially in women, but a combination of nicotine and non-nicotine tobacco ingredients may be necessary to suppress smoking behavior. Expand
Alcohol-induced increases in smoking behavior for nicotinized and denicotinized cigarettes in men and women
TLDR
The results indicate that the mechanisms underlying co-use of alcohol and tobacco in women may be more complex than in men, whereas in women, alcohol increased smoking urge but did not increase smoking behavior. Expand
Prolonged exposure to denicotinized cigarettes with or without transdermal nicotine.
TLDR
To determine whether denicotinized cigarettes lose their reinforcing and/or subjective effects over a 9-day outpatient period when they are smoked with or without concurrent transdermal nicotine, 68 participants were randomized into four conditions. Expand
Effects of cigarette nicotine content and smoking pace on subsequent craving and smoking
TLDR
Only at high doses did nicotine levels play an additional role in acutely suppressing smoking behavior, and small elevations in craving ratings were associated with choices to smoke. Expand
Influence of Nicotine Gum on Acute Cravings for Cigarettes
TLDR
Evaluating the efficacy of nicotine gum in alleviating acute cravings for cigarettes using the subjective multi-dimensional Questionnaire of Smoking Urges (QSU) and the objective progressive ratio (PR) measures of craving revealed no significant difference between groups on measures of PR performance or mood and anxiety. Expand
Smoking in the absence of nicotine: behavioral, subjective and physiological effects over 11 days.
TLDR
These effects highlight the importance of non-nicotine sensorimotor stimuli as determinants of the maintenance of smoking behavior and suggests that extinction of conditioned reinforcement in the absence of nicotine progresses slowly. Expand
Sex differences in the influence of nicotine dose instructions on the reinforcing and self-reported rewarding effects of smoking
TLDR
In women but not in men, the influence of nicotine on smoking reward and reinforcement is enhanced by accurate verbal information about the cigarette's nicotine dose, consistent with the notion that the smoking behavior of women, relative to men, may be more responsive to nonpharmacological factors. Expand
Reinforcing effects of nicotine and non-nicotine components of cigarette smoke
TLDR
While current smoking cessation pharmacotherapies primarily address the nicotine component of cigarette addiction, future cessation strategies should also be designed to target non-nicotine factors. Expand
Mood, nicotine, and dose expectancy effects on acute responses to nicotine spray.
TLDR
Findings in Nicotrol nasal spray may have implications for enhancing the acute therapeutic effects of nasal spray and, perhaps, other medications in smokers trying to maintain abstinence after quitting. Expand
The addition of five minor tobacco alkaloids increases nicotine-induced hyperactivity, sensitization and intravenous self-administration in rats.
TLDR
The results suggest that the minor tobacco alkaloids, particularly anatabine, cotinine and myosmine, may increase the motivation for nicotine and thus facilitate smoking behaviour. Expand
