Nicotine and emotion[edit]

Hey! I see you haven't gotten so far with your chapter as of yet, so I thought I'd find you a simple journal article that is all about how reward sensitivity and positive emotions effect nicotine cravings!! I hope you like it :) If you can't use the link the article is called: Predicting cigarette-seeking behavior: How reward sensitivity and positive emotions influence nicotine cravings. Good luck!!

Hey there, not sure if this will be helpful for you or not but I came across this article when researching for another class:

Keeley, R. D., & Driscoll, M. (2012). An Association between Emotional Responsiveness and Smoking Behavior. Journal of Addiction, 2013.

Hello I see you've got a really broad topic, but you pose some interesting questions. Perhaps including a little on how to quite smoking or how passive smokers could deal emotionally, keeping in mind the self help aspect of the chapter. I'm assuming you too are using a word doc prior to pasting on here? Just shout out if you'd like a hand :). U3065856 (discusscontribs) 07:04, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Hey :) The page is looking really good!! I especially like the pictures and figure as they break up the information nicely! I think it would be a good idea to include some kind of a case study or story so people can understand what the emotional effects of nicotine are, even if they don't smoke. Good luck with the next two days :) EmmaP (discusscontribs) 11:43, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

A very important chapter on a hot button topic! Well done.


The chapter covered a number of models explaining physiological and emotional reasons why people smoke – well done. In terms of further theoretical coverage, I believe the chapter would benefit from some theoretical background in the areas of helping to quit smoking,(since this seems to be the take home message of the chapter) such as using the Theory of Planned Behaviour or the Self Determination Theory to assist in quitting. For future improvement, also engage in critical analysis of the models.


The chapter clearly benefited from wide and relevant research, well done. There was some evidence of integration with research and the models – good job. The chapter would benefit from some further empirical studies to help integration of theory and research - i.e some inclusion of studies on peer pressure and smoking. For future improvement, critical analysis is necessary

Written expression[edit]

The chapter was generally well written, well done..

The learning features were fantastic, I particularly liked the boxes with areas for support and prevention. For future improvement, perhaps include another interactive feature such as a quiz. The APA style was solid, watch your in text citations on the DSM 5, and remember to italicise journal names and numbers. Great jobCourtney.reis (discusscontribs)

A well presented and creative summary, good job.

Structure and content[edit]

The presentation had good coverage of all the theories and self help applications, well done. For future improvement, integrate some more research to show more of the flavour of the chapter.


The presentation used powerpoint to great effect, I enjoyed the images and animations, well done. It was well paced, though some of the slides moved on a little too fast to read. The presentation could have benefited from the inclusion of a case study to engage the viewer further. The music was a little distracting at the same time as the voiceover, so for future improvements perhaps include only in short segments

Production quality[edit]

The quality of the presentation was sound, and it made good use of basic and some more advanced tools, well done. The audio quality was sound, though the comment above re: music and voiceover applies here too. Remember to include licensing information. Great effort! Courtney.reis (discusscontribs)
