ADHD isn't so much a deficit of attention but more of self-regulation. Research suggests that those with ADHD have earlier onsets of smoking and of smoking longer. Much of this is related right back to the challenges of self-regulation. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD coach Jeff Copper (https://digcoaching.com) interviews Dr. John Mitchell at Duke University (http://sites.duke.edu/adhdprogram/). They talk about vaping and smoking, their impact on attention, the urge to self-medicate, the long-term effects of smoking, and some of the challenges associated with it. If you smoke or vape, this is a show you won't want to miss.
