Adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are more likely to smoke cigarettes and become dependent on nicotine. They may also find it more difficult to give up smoking. Researchers are investigating why this is the case.
ADHD is often associated with children, but it can continue into adulthood.
According to Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD), as many as 10 million adults in the United States (U.S.) have ADHD.
