Indicators of nicotine addiction among women--United States, 1991-1992.


An estimated 22 million U.S. women were current smokers in 1993; of these, 73% wanted to quit smoking (1). However, attempts to quit smoking and to remain abstinent are hindered by nicotine addiction and by the subsequent effects of nicotine withdrawal (2). To assess the prevalence of selected indicators of nicotine addiction among U.S. women, CDC analyzed data from the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA) in 1991 and 1992 (3). This report presents the findings of the analysis.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS).
