Popis Background: Weight concerns are prevalent in smokers and may reduce the success rate of quitting. This concept has been primarily studied on US populations and it is unknown how weight concerns may differ cross-culturally. This study examined the role of weight concern in European smokers wishing to stop smoking. Methods: A sample of 593 smokers (299 men and 294 women, mean age 38 years) utilizing the Centre for Tobacco-Dependent in Prague, Czech Republic, between 2010 and 2013 were studied. Weight concerns were assessed at baseline prior to treatment by evidence-based stop smoking methods. Abstinence was evaluated at 12 months post baseline.
