This study investigates the biometric signature associated with tobacco craving and stress elicitation using principles of cue reactivity. Seventy-five non-smokers and smokers (half of whom were tobacco-deprived for 6 hours) took part in a standardized laboratory session during which they were presented with a series of film clips designed to arouse fear, amusement, or craving. Participants self-reported their emotional response to each film clip and wore non-invasive biosensors to collect physiologic data. Findings indicate different patterns of physiologic arousal for smokers than non-smokers; and that among smokers, deprived smokers had significantly different arousal patterns than non-deprived smokers. This article describes how the elicitation of stress and craving can contribute to the prediction of arousal patterns associated with tobacco craving and how this can create new opportunities for smoking cessation intervention. A comparison of each group's patterns of arousal and physiologic activity is presented, with particular focus on the differences between smokers and deprived smokers.
