This study examined data from the National Health Interview Survey. Results showed that current smoking among adults without serious psychological distress (SPD) decreased steadily between 1997 and 2011 (from 24.1 to 18.2 percent). However, current smoking among adults with SPD did not decline during the same time period (43.6 percent in 1997 and 42.1 percent in 2011). The authors conclude that mental health providers may want to assess whether their patients need help to quit smoking.
