Abstract
Cigarette smoking is a very important health problem and represents the largest preventable risk factor for
premature death in developed countries. A considerable body of research indicates that impulsivity is a central
etiological concept in many theoretical models of tobacco addiction. The aim of this study is to analyse which
dimensions of impulsivity are related to cigarette craving. To this end, 40 undergraduate psychology students were
screened using the revised Questionnaire on Smoking Urges (QSU-12) and the French adaptation of the UPPS
Impulsive Behavior Scale (UPPS). This scale identifies four distinct components associated with impulsive
behaviour: urgency, lack of premeditation, lack of perseverance, and sensation seeking. The results showed that
urgency is a significant predictor of tobacco cravings, while depression and anxiety are not.
