    Among current smokers, reported smoking less than one cigarette per day consistently throughout the years that they smoked; nearly 1, reported smoking between one and 10 cigarettes per day. The study relied on people recalling their smoking history over many decades, which introduced a degree of uncertainty into the findings. The following four factors were used to assess the effects that the age of initiation had on an individual’s cigarette smoking trajectory and subsequent health effects: (1) nicotine dependence, (2) the number of cigarettes smoked per day (smoking intensity), (3) the likelihood of smoking cessation (or, conversely, the likelihood of remaining.

    HIV-infected persons not only have higher rates of smoking than the general population, but are also unusually vulnerable to the associated adverse health effects, both infective and noninfective in origin. Indeed, in the setting of well-organised care and availability of highly active antiretroviral therapy, HIV-infected smokers lose more life-years to smoking than to HIV infection per se. Current smoking status predicted cognitive impairment (risk ratio (RR) ; (95% confidence interval (95% CI)=) independently from sex, age, alcohol, occupational class, education.

    Cigarette consumption is associated with lower socioeconomic status, even in low- and medium-HDI countries. Other vulnerable populations with high smoking prevalence include individuals from certain racial/ethnic groups, the mentally ill (see Comorbidities), and, in some countries, in the LGBT community.   Our smoking cessation data were self-reported. Although % of the sample quit smoking, the low numbers of e-cigarette users in this sample (n = 88), particularly e-cigarette users who quit smoking (n = 9), may have limited our statistical power to detect a significant relationship between e-cigarette use and quitting.
