This is the first national US study to focus on the prevalence and time trends of depression, marijuana use, and problematic alcohol use among former smokers.

For centuries understanding how the order of events is stored in memory has been a mystery.

The impact on boys' mental health appears to mainly be due to other mechanisms, not revealed by this study.
