Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) have negative effect on women, and they are more likely to take up smoking due to it. The above given statement formed to be the finding of a study.
The study revealed that women, who have either witnessed physical or emotional abuse, have greater chances to take up smoking. Lead author Dr. Tara Strine said that ACEs can be anything like physical, emotional, sexual abuse and household dysfunction.
Strine said that they questioned 60 people, and all of them have witnessed one of them. “ACEs only increased the risk of smoking among women. Given this, men who have experienced childhood trauma may have different coping mechanisms than their female counterparts”, further affirmed Strine.
In addition to question people, the study researchers even assessed 7000 people, in which half were women and rest were men. After adjusting all the factors, it was found that women, who have suffered ACEs, are more likely to take up smoking.
Strine said that they have got to know another factor, which led women to take up smoking. After knowing the ACEs reason, it will be easier for anti-smoking campaigners to strategize on the same, so women do not take up smoking.
