Introduction
As of the year 2015, smoking remained the 2
nd
most implicated risk factor for
premature mortality and disability globally. Since the last decade of 20
th
century, it has been
responsible for as much as five million deaths each year and the way it contributes to global
illness burden is increasing day by day, more specifically in the developing nations. The
adverse impact of smoking surpasses personal and community health to culminate in huge
economic losses globally due to disability and morbidity as enormous sums of money are
spent on the treatment of smoking-induced diseases (GBD 2015 Tobacco Collaborators,
2017). Compared to non-smokers, smokers find it tough in achieving mental concentration
(Faulkner et al., 2017).
A study on the gender difference in smoking behaviours in an Asian population in
China was done by Chen et al. (2017). The results of the study showed that the current
smoking rate in the sample of population observed for males was 44.8% and for females it
was 2.0% which shows a drastic difference. The study also refers to another investigation in
which the smoking rate was 55.3% for men and 1.9% for women. The study and its results
potentiated the common belief that smoking was predominantly a masculine habit.
Another study on the gender differences in smoking behaviours was published in the
same year but on a population of the United States (Phillips et al., 2017). The study examined
the differences in the usage of tobacco products including cigarettes amongst the various
population groups. The results of the study showed that the percentage of tobacco users
(including cigarette smoking) males and females was 25.2 percent and 15.4 per cent
respectively.
Another research study addressing the smoking differences between members of the
two genders in the contemporary Eastern population was undertaken by Hossain et al. (2017).
Being an observational research, the investigators collected data from a sample of male and
