Title Occupational factors, smoking habits and tobacco withdrawal symptoms among male Japanese employees
Bibliographic information Jan. 1997, Vol.35, No.1, p.9-15. 31 ref.
Abstract A questionnaire survey of 2,862 male employees in a Japanese electrical company identified 1,443 subjects with an experience of quitting smoking for at least three days. Of these, 67% had experienced tobacco withdrawal symptoms. Statistical analysis indicated that younger age, technical/clerical occupation, exhaustion after work, number of cigarettes smoked per day, duration of smoking and the number of attempts to quit smoking were significantly associated with tobacco withdrawal symptoms.
