This project focused on developing a self-administrable tool, called the Loss of Autonomy over Smoking Checklist (LASC), to measure the onset and progression of nicotine dependence. This was done to provide health professionals with a psychometrically sound tool to detect the onset of autonomy loss over smoking and to tailor cessation programs. Unlike traditional tools, the LASC intentionally excludes socio-cultural factors from the characterization of addiction, making it applicable for use among both adolescents and adults.
