Most people immediately think of alcohol when discussing substance use in the military. However, Dr. Kim Copeland take a look at two of the more prevalent substances, tobacco and caffiene, in her Staff Perspective blog entry "Chasing the Energy Dragon - Tobacco and Caffiene Use in the Military." The first of a two-part series focuses on the historical use and current trends of tobacco use. Also, don't forget to check out this week's Research Update. As always, it's packed with the latest news, journal articles and useful links from around the Web.
That's all for this week. Thanks for joining us again and be sure to come back on Monday for a brand-new "By the Numbers." Have a great weekend everyone!
