Abstract

The consistency of the tobacco withdrawal syndrome across repeated periods of abstinence was tested using a modified A-B-A-B design. The large majority of the signs and symptoms of tobacco withdrawal occured during abstinence, returned to baseline, and then recurred during a second abstinence period. This finding suggests that the syndrome is reliable and can be studied with within-subject designs.
