Subject: useful smoking and alcohol information

Dear NONMEMers,

what smoking and alcohol info you feel useful to record in population studies (generally, and in schizophrenic patients in particular) besides current smoker/nonsmoker and never drink/sometimes/daily. Have you ever used and found important any of the following: a tobacco product used, # of years of smoking, # of years after cessation, amount per day, years of smoking X packs per day? Anything else? Have you ever made use of # of drinks per day, or any other quantitative information about alcohol?

I appreciate your thoughts on the subject.
