  • * p Value for the vertical contrast of lifetime use for dippers and smokers analysed separately.

  • This was the only measure on which dippers and smokers differed significantly from one another in this table (p<0.05 for both levels of lifetime use).

  • AUTOS, Autonomy Over Smoking Scale; HONC, Hooked on Nicotine Checklist.
