College students tend to smoke when they are partying, drinking and working, according to a new study. "Students are using social events and work as cues to remind them about smoking," said the study's lead author, Nikole Cronk, an assistant professor of family and community medicine at the University of Missouri School of Medicine, in a news release. "This research is important for those working with college students to recognize when smoking is happening at its highest levels." Prevention programs should target students during those times, Cronk added. The study is in the journal Substance Use & Misuse.
