Teen Smokers are low on Emotional Intelligence

I find following article in one local English newspaper.  I feel let me share.  I consider this as part of volunteering to society.

Students who regularly smoke tobacco or cannabis obtain lower scores in questions related to emotional regulation, a team of Spanish researchers has found.

Also, students less able to regulate their emotional state-or those low on Emotional Intelligence (EI) are more tempted to consume tobacco or cannabis, the researcher at Barcelona based UAB University said.

EI is defined as the capacity to perceive, comprehend and regulate one’s own emotions and those of others so as to be able to distinguish between emotions and use this information as a guide for one’s thoughts and actions.As important benefit of EI is the ability to learn how to interact with others and to face an ever changing social and cultural word move effectively.
