A study conducted by the National Network of Smoking Prevention and Poverty found that cigarettes served as a tool for those of low socioeconomic status to cope with boredom, relieve stress and as a companion to alcohol and caffeine. Cigarettes served as a loyal friend a theme recognizable from cigarette advertising. Other results of the studies conducted on this population included:

 Store promotions served as major incentives, and there is high brand loyalty among this population.

· Individuals did not relate smoking to deadly illnesses, or connect smoking to health risks. Many cited secondhand smoke as more harmful than smoking.

. Raising cigarette costs do not serve as a deterrent, instead forcing individuals in this segment to merely buy down by buying generic brands or rolling their own cigarettes.

.Unsuccessful quitting attempts and relapses are caused by stress, friends and family and environmental cues.

.Lack of inquiry by providers and little advice or support by doctors to quit was reported. Some did not admit to smoking for fear of being scolded.

·Lack of self-efficacy individuals did not have a belief in their own power to quit.

There are other factors unique to this community that prohibit prevention. Education materials may not be culturally or linguistically appropriate for this segment, and often members of this population live in communities where tobacco advertising is more
prominent. Those who work in manufacturing, construction, or transportation are more likely to be exposed to second hand smoke at work. Also, quitting occurs less often in this segment, and when individuals do quit they are more likely to relapse, a fact not
helped by the fact that smoking may be considered the norm among family and peers.

And, for many members of this population, smoking simply meets a need that cannot  be met with something else.

As many as 700,000 people are homeless on any given night. The homeless population is heavily represented by the mentally ill, over half have drug or alcohol dependency, and a disproportionate amount of homeless are ethnic minorities.

Homelessness makes people exceedingly susceptible to smoking. Studies suggest that between 70 99% of homeless adults smoke. The homeless experience high stress, and feel vulnerable, overwhelmed and helpless. Also, mental illness and chemical
dependency can increase susceptibility to marketing efforts that suggest that tobacco can help them cope.

Hand-rolled cigarettes without filters, using recycled tobacco from butts, and group smoking can increase the dangers of each cigarette smoked, further endangering the health of this vulnerable population. The hazardous consequences of these behaviours
can be seen in the dramatic increase in throat and mouth cancer of homeless people.
