Description:

The Cigarette Evaluation Questionnaire (CEQ) assesses the degree to which subjects experience the reinforcing effects of smoking. It is a self-administered questionnaire that contains 11 items covering both the reinforcing and the adverse effects of smoking, asking subjects to rate the extent to which recently smoked cigarettes were satisfying, tasted good, made them dizzy, calmed them down, helped them concentrate, made them feel more awake, reduced appetite, made them nauseous, decreased irritability, produced enjoyable sensations in the throat and chest, and immediately reduced craving for cigarettes. The modified Cigarette Evaluation Questionnaire (mCEQ) contains an extra item on enjoying smoking in addition to the 11 original items. The items are rated on a seven-point scale ranging from 1 for "Not at all" to 7 for "Extremely."

Scoring Procedure and Interpretation

The modified Cigarette Evaluation Questionnaire (mCEQ) uses three multi-item subscales and two single items: "Smoking Satisfaction" (items 1, 2, and 12); "Psychological Reward" (items 4 through 8); "Aversion" (items 9 and 10); "Enjoyment of Respiratory Tract Sensations" (item 3); and "Craving Reduction" (item 11). Scores for each subscale are calculated as the mean of the individual item responses or the single item. Higher scores indicate greater intensity on that scale.

Specific Instructions:

The modified Cigarette Evaluation Questionnaire (mCEQ) may be used in laboratory studies to assess the subjective effects of cigarette smoking. The participant typically completes the mCEQ at selected intervals after smoking.

The Substance Abuse and Addiction Working Group acknowledges that the following questions may gather sensitive information relating to the use of substances and/or illegal conduct. If the information is released, it might be damaging to an individual’s employability, lead to social stigmatization, or lead to other consequences.

Most researchers assure confidentiality as part of their informed consent process, as required by their institutional review boards. Further assurance of confidentiality may be obtained by applying to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for a Certificate of Confidentiality, which helps researchers protect the privacy of human research participants. The procedures for the Certificate of Confidentiality can be found at the Grants Policy website of NIH: http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/policy/coc/index.htm.

Selection Rationale

The modified Cigarette Evaluation Questionnaire (mCEQ) was chosen because it has demonstrated validity and is suitable for use in clinical and research settings.

Measure Name:

Acute Subjective Response to Substances - Current

Release Date:

February 24, 2012

Definition

Instruments used separately to assess current acute subjective responses to substances that the respondent has recently ingested or used.

Purpose

This measure is to assess a respondent’s feelings after recently smoking cigarettes, ingesting alcohol, or using drugs. The protocol is used to obtain subjective responses to the tobacco, alcohol, or drug administered. The Working Group recommends that investigators use the primary protocol to obtain general information on a variety of substances. The secondary protocols can then be used to obtain detailed information on a specific substance.
