[en] The habit of smoking may have automatic behavioral components guided by implicit attitudes. Smokers’
attitudes toward smoking should thus be less negative than nonsmokers’, so that a salient smoking cue
(smell) is able to activate positive aspects of these attitudes. An affective priming task was used to explore this
hypothesis. Unexpectedly, smokers and nonsmokers showed equally negative implicit attitudes, irrespective
of smell. Smokers exposed to the cigarette smell did, however, display generally slower responses than
nonsmokers, suggesting attentional bias. This could have implications for smoking policies in contexts where
attentional factors affect performance.
