This study examined differences between alcohol-dependent offenders of intimate partner violence (IPV) with and without current daily cigarette smoking. Eighty-five alcohol dependent men arrested for domestic and referred to substance abuse treatment were evaluated. A total of 71% of the participants reported current cigarette smoking. The groups were divided into daily smokers (n = 52) vs. non-daily smokers (n = 21). Daily smokers had significantly more days of alcohol use in the 28 days prior to starting treatment, significantly more ASI alcohol and legal severity, and significantly more participants with a diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder compared to non-daily smoking alcohol dependent offenders of IPV.
