Abstract
Objective: To develop a simple, easily administered pencil-and-paper questionnaire to determine the degree to which behavioral patterns play a role in smoking dependence. Methods: A modified Delphi technique was used to identify initial questions and to eliminate obvious duplications. Phase 2 utilized multiple statistical methods (principal components analysis, cluster analysis, stepwise multiple linear regression, cross tables, Mantel-Haenzel chi(2)-test, and a Gamma test) to evaluate and re- duce the number of questions from 18. Results- These analyses yielded an 11 -item questionnaire that can potentially assess behavioral dependence. Conclusion: It is hoped that the GN-SBQ will assist physicians, health care providers, and tobacco... (More)

Conclusion: It is hoped that the GN-SBQ will assist physicians, health care providers, and tobacco interventionists in identifying aspects of smoking addiction that are behavioral in nature. The need for future research is discussed. (Less)
