All 5 sub factors of Smoking Motivation Questionnaire(SMQ) used as a mediating factors. For this study, a total of 195 adolescent smokers completed a self-reporting questionnaire on Difficulties in Emotional Regulation, Smoking Motivation, Nicotine Dependence. The results indicated that Need for Pleasurable Relaxation and Habitual Smoking mediated the relationship between Difficulties in Emotional Regulation and Nicotine Dependence. However, Need for Negative Affect Control, Need for Mental Activity, Need for Social Appeal didn’t mediate the relationship between Difficulties in Emotional Regulation and Nicotine Dependence.
