Abstract:

Tobacco use has long been a part of military culture. While numerous tobacco-related policies have been implemented by the Department of Defense since 1975, rates of tobacco use remain higher among military personnel compared to civilians. The current study examines aspects of military tobacco culture in order to explain existing influences that encourage tobacco use.
