Ong and his colleagues reported their findings online May 13 in appreciation of publication in an upcoming print issue of the American Journal of Public Health. The authors noted that smoking is the leading cause of death in the United States.
The current verdict stems from a 2000-2001 survey of more than 7,500 men and women, about 23 percent of whom had an alcohol, drug or mental health disorder in the year prior to being polled. More than four in 10 in that subgroup were smokers, which the authors incisive out is a much higher percentage of smokers than is found among the general public.
