Ces applications qui promeuvent la consommation de tabac

Des chercheurs de l'Université de Sydney ont trouvé 107 applications pro-tabac sur la boutique Apple Store ou sur Android Market. Les jeunes seraient particulièrement vulnérables.

L'industrie du tabac utilise des applications pour smartphones pour promouvoir ses produits, notamment auprès des enfants. Ce sont en effet eux qui utilisent le plus ces technologies, ont averti mardi des chercheurs. Lire la suite...

Article par l'équipe de Stop-Tabac: A test of proposed new tobacco withdrawal symptoms

Addiction, 2012

Aims

Recent studies suggest that smoking cessation may cause more withdrawal symptoms than previously thought. The widely used Minnesota Withdrawal Scale (MWS-R) was recently revised to include some of these newly described symptoms. We assessed the validity of MWS-R and other proposed self-reported measures of tobacco withdrawal symptoms.

Design and Setting

An Internet survey of daily and former smokers with repeated measurements, followed by a randomized trial among the daily smokers.

Participants

Daily smokers (n=1126) and former smokers (n=3239).

Measurements

Participants answered the original MWS (9 items), the 8 additional symptoms in the MWS-R and 23 other questions on tobacco withdrawal symptoms. Daily smokers were randomly assigned to either continue to smoke for 2 weeks or to stop smoking, and they answered follow-up surveys 1, 3 and 7 days after their target quit date.

Findings

Among the 31 proposed new symptoms tested by comparing recent quitters with continuing smokers, the only withdrawal-like symptom observed was worsening of mood swings. Post-cessation change in mood swings remained statistically significant after adjustment for baseline depression, irritability, impatience, restlessness, stress, or anxious/nervous. Also, abstinence improved sense of smell, sense of taste, and sore throat. Post-cessation change in symptoms intensities did not predict relapse.

Conclusions

Moods swings are a symptom of tobacco withdrawal that can be validly measured and are unpleasant. In contrast, smoking cessation also has positive, immediate effects, including improved sense of smell and taste and reduced sore throat.
