Alcohol and Nicotine Feed Each Other
A study conducted in Additions 1995 found that 80% to 95% of alcoholics smoke, compared with 25% to 30% of nonalcoholics. Even among nonalcoholics, those who smoked were reported to drink twice as much alcohol as did nonsmokers. This indicates that alcoholic programs should also have smoking cessation programs in there facilities.
