Berg CJ, Parelkar PP, Lessard L, Escoffery C, Kegler MC, Sterling KL, Ahluwalia JS. Nicotine Tob Res. 2010 Sep;12(9):963-9. Epub 2010 Jul 30.
This study examined how college students who smoke define the term "smoker” and how this definition impacts smoking behavior and attitudes. Definitions of "smoker” varied among respondents. Many participants indicated confidence in being able to quit but believed they were not "smokers” and thus did not need to quit. The authors conclude that the criteria for defining "smoker” impacts how motivated students are to quit smoking and their perception of needing to "quit smoking.”
