Researchers found half of the individuals along with a substance use disorder, 56% reported cigarette were reported in previous month. When compared with 18% of those without a substance use disorder. As cigarette smoking has failed in the U.S. from past few years and in 2002, the smoking rate has increased significantly among people with an illicit substance use disorder.

A new study suggests that cigarette smoking has been failed in the U.S. from past several years. But in 2002, smoking frequency is increased significantly among the people with an illegal substance for developing disorders. It was occurring in some individuals with an illicit substance and with disorders. This study was published in the journal Addiction.

The data show that smoking rates increased among those with substance use disorders, including hallucinogens, inhalants, tranquilizers, cocaine, heroin, pain relievers, simulants, and sedatives, while cigarette smoking decreased among individuals with cannabis use disorders, as well as among those without any substance use disorders.

The researchers analyzed data from 725,010 Americans ages 12 and older in the National Survey on Drug Use and Health for 2002 to 2014. They found more than half of individuals with a substance use disorder (56 percent) reported cigarette use in the past month, compared with 18 percent of those without a substance use disorder.

When cannabis use disorders were excluded, smoking rates for those with a substance use disorder climbed to 64 percent; among those with cannabis use disorder, 51 percent reported past month cigarette use.

Renee Goodwin said, "We found that cigarette use was not only disproportionately common among those with a substance use disorder, but that the odds of smoking were five times greater than that of the general population."

Goodwin noted, "Given the extremely elevated rates of smoking among persons with substance use disorders, it seems that neither population-based tobacco control efforts nor clinical smoking cessation strategies have reached or been as effective among persons with substance use disorders."

A new public health strategies were needed, for reaching those substances use disorders. To lower the smoking rates among this vulnerable group of individuals. Smoking cessation services are offered for a substance-use programs and providing an opportunity for smoking cessation. The substance disorder treatment programs could integrate with smoking treatments, this is to deliver service effectively.
