AbstractTo investigate those factors associated with patients' cigarette smoking status, 455 consecutive patients seen in two specialty clinics and one general medicine clinic at a university medical center were studied. Patient's age, sex, health status, and number of previous cessation attempts discriminated current from ex-smokers. A strong interaction was observed between sex and disease status with females showing a greater impact of smoking-related disease on smoking behavior than males.
