Consumer Reports

Women have behavioral dependence on smoking | (UPI) -- Researchers from the French National Institute of Health say sex differences play a role in trying to quit smoking.

A new report suggests women smokers have a higher behavioral dependence on cigarettes and a lower nicotine dependence than men.

The authors recommend nicotine replacement therapy and behavioral treatment be specifically tailored to women to increase their chances of quitting for good.

Women smokers using NRT to quit could benefit from a nicotine inhalation system because of its potential to replace some of the oral, handling and sensory reinforcements of smoking, the report notes.
