ABSTRACT
A study was conducted to examine the relationship between religion and tobacco use among low-income persons living in the South. The study findings revealed significant differences between tobacco users and nonusers in attending religious services: while about 40% of nonusers were attending church services more than once a week, less than 30% of tobacco users attended church services. Study results also show that about 45% of Baptist reported to bacco use. Overall, participant's religiosity was found to be very strong. Other implications for the study are discussed.
