AFONSO, Fernanda  y  PEREIRA, Maria da Graça. Predictors of psychological morbidity in smokers, motivated to stop smoking, and abstinents. Rev. SBPH [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.2, pp. 96-116. ISSN 1516-0858.

This study examines psychological morbidity, tobacco representations, coping and partner support in smokers motivated to quit smoking and abstinents. 106 smokers and 68 abstinents participated in the study. All smokers were on a waiting list to stop smoking and abstinents have been without smoking for at least three months. The sample was collected in a central hospital and a private enterprise in the north of Portugal. Results showed, in smokers, more depressive symptoms, more attention coping and more threatening representations when compared to abstinents. Abstinents revealed more positive partner support to quit smoking. In smokers, be a woman, age, negative partner's support coherence and trait-anxiety were the best predictors of depression. On the other hand, depression, duration of tobacco consumption and emotional representations were predictors of anxiety. In abstinents, be a woman, consequences and anxiety are the best predictors of depression. According to the results it is important that interventions for smoking cessation include psychological morbidity.
