Military-related factors associated with smoking in Veterans
What is it about?
Veterans smoke more than people in the general population. Since smoking has poor consequences, we wanted to see what general and military-related factors may make Veterans more or less likely to start or continue smoking. We showed that there are military-related factors that may influence Veterans smoking.
Why is it important?
By assessing risk factors in this unique population future research can leverage these findings to determine mechanisms that help explain these associations. Identifying factors associated with smoking offers insights for smoking cessation and prevention interventions given the military experiences and increased smoking incidence among Veterans.
