Frequent tobacco use is related to a greater strain from mental complaints. Frequent tobacco smoking is also connected with the choice of stress-coping strategies which focus around one's own emotions and distractions, and are not related to making efforts aimed at solving the problem. It may be therefore assumed that tobacco smoking intensifies behaviours which make it impossible to solve a stressful situation.
