Abstract

In almost every year, Indonesia is experiencing higher burden of disease and an increase in the number of deaths due to smoking. To stop the increase in the number of smokers, the researchers look at the factors that play a role in smoking behavior. Previous research has shown that one of the factors is negative emotions will increase an individual’s frequency of smoking, but other research conclude that higher negative emotions or lower distress tolerance does not increase smoking frequency. Therefore, to solve it, researchers focus to examine the role of distress tolerance toward smoking behavior in the context of Indonesian Adults. This research uses an associative descriptive quantitative design with path analysis technique. The samples of this study were taken proportionally and randomly with a total of 232 participants of Indonesian adults. The result is each decrease in distress tolerance will cause an increase in smoking behavior. Distress tolerance has a contribution of 12.2% to smoking behavior. Through this study, it was concluded that smoking behavior will increase if the individual poorly understands, accepts, places and regulates negative emotions. The findings of this study expand literature, and help reduce smoking behavior in addictive smokers ranging from themselves, practitioners to national regulations that can be carried out by the government.
