Example text

Cigarette smoking is also implicated in the etiology of respiratory diseases such as chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and lung cancer. Here again, as Gritz points out, the prevalence of these conditions is higher in men than in women, but when rates of smoking in both sexes are taken into account, the sex difference diminishes significantly. The clear implication is that some factor related to smoking per se plays a primary causal role. Thorough studies of sex differences in morbidity and mortality of chronic users of other drugs do not appear to have been made.

A comparison of outcomes in the two groups would therefore contribute significantly to assessing the role of one important factor in cessation of drug use: motivation. The question of the possible role of other sex differences in prognostic factors bearing on treatment outcomes is examined in detail by Annis and Liban in relation to alcoholism. They conclude that at present, the evidence is suggestive but too limited to permit clear-cut conclusions. " The same considerations obviously apply to cigarette smoking and all other types of drug dependence.

But whether the possible correlation between the frequency of alcoholism in parents and children is genetically or environmentally determined, and whether or not this possible correlation applies to both sons and daughters of alcoholics, has not yet been definitively established. Evidence for Scandinavian males based on studies of twins, half siblings, and adoptees born to alcoholic parents strongly supports the notion that a genetic factor is involved. Studies in females are too few to permit any firm conclusions at this time, but those that do exist suggest that there may be a sex difference in this respect.
