Abstract

Aggressive marketing of smokeless tobacco (SLT) appears to have led to an increase in dual tobacco use. The current study examines the situational contexts, self-perceptions, and cessation attitudes/behaviors that relate to dual use. Participants (N = 1,242) at a large, Southwestern university completed a self-report measure of demographic and tobacco use variables in 2010. Data were analyzed using chi-square and one-way ANOVA techniques. Findings suggest that type of tobacco use varies by setting and that dual users are more likely than sole users to perceive themselves as regular tobacco users. Limitations and implications for future research and interventions are discussed.
