Abstract: 

Introduction: Cigarette is the most common and cheapest addictive substance associated with physical, financial, familial and social harm. Khantezian self-medication hypothesis proposes that many people smoke because of low distress tolerance and emotional dysregulation. However, there is no research concerning this issue in Iran. The present study aims at analyzing the relation among distress tolerance, emotional regulation and smoking dependence.
Methods: 118 male smoker students from University of Tehran were chosen as samples. They were B.A. students of psychology, Law and Political Science fields being 18 to 27 years old. The rate of smoking dependence among them was assessed by Fagerstrome Nicotine Dependence Test (FTND). The distress tolerance rate and emotional regulation was also assessed by Simons and Gaher Distress Tolerance Scale (DTS) and Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS). The data was analyzed by analysis of variances, multiple regression and Pearson's correlation coefficient.
Results: There was a significant negative correlation between distress tolerance rate of the students and their nicotine dependence (r=-0.711, p<0.01). There was also a significant positive correlation between the students’ emotional dysregulation and their nicotine dependence (r=0.856, p<0.01). The results indicated that lack of emotional clarification, difficulties in impulse control and appraising and absorbing distress, predict a significant percent of dependence variance (p<0.01).
Conclusion: There is a significant correlation between distress tolerance, emotional regulation and smoking dependence. The results are parallel with the addiction self-medication theory.
