I-curiosity and D-curiosity in smoking initiation: is regret the key?

Abstract
The current paper shows that individuals can be I-curious (interest-driven) and D-curious (deprivation-driven) for initiating smoking (study 1). Further, we demonstrate that scoring high on D-curiosity to start smoking is associated with a higher motivation to quit smoking, because people who initiate smoking out of D-curiosity experience more regret (study 2). A third study shows that anti-tobacco advertising is effective to enhance smokers motivation to quit smoking, in the case of individuals who started smoking out of D-curiosity, but not for individuals scoring high on I-curiosity to start smoking. A fourth study shows that when regret is made salient, anti-smoking advertising works for both curiosity-type smokers.
