    Takayama city, Gifu Prefecture, Japan.

    The response rate was 85%. Measurements.

    The WHO Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI) was used to make diagnoses of to bacco/nicotine dependence according to ICD-10, DSM-III-R and DSM-IV.

    The Fagerstrom Tolerance Questionnaire (FTQ) was also administered and those who had a FTQ score of 7 or above were identified.


    The life-time prevalence rates of tobacco/nicotine dependence in male ever-smokers were 42%, 26% and 32% according to ICD-10, DSM-III-R and DSM-IV criteria, respectively ; 19% had a FTQ score of 7 or above.

    The ICD-10 diagnosis was significantly and negatively associated with quitting smoking (p<0.05).

    Multiple logistic regression analyses indicated that number of cigarettes per day when they smoked the most was significantly associated with higher life-time risks of the disorder according to DSM-III-R, DSM-1 V and Fagerstrom's classification (p<0. 05). (...)
