Abstract

Client questionnaires representing 38 gender-specific substance abuse facilities throughout Ohio were analyzed to explore smoking prevalence, cessation and readiness to quit tobacco use. The analysis revealed 79.7% of women used tobacco products at the time of the survey, 33.5% of smokers had made at least one quit attempt within the past 12 months and 55.2% of current smokers reported either contemplating or preparing to make a quit attempt. A multinomial logistic regression revealed that clients who experienced a past quit attempt were more likely to be in the preparation stage and clients who smoked 30 out of the past 30 days were least likely to be in the preparation stage. A three-pronged approach that examines the physiological, emotional, and social components of addiction is recommended.
