Bidi Smoker For respondents who ONLY smoke bidis.
Smoked Tobacco User For respondents who smoke cigarette and/or bidis.
Smokeless Tobacco User For respondents who ONLY use smokeless tobacco.

Quitter For recontact respondents who have QUIT all tobacco products.
Non-Smoker, Non-user of Tobacco, or Ex-tobacco user For respondents who DO NOT use smokeless tobacco OR smoke cigarettes or bidis.

However, screening generally includes all tobacco products that are commonly used in a country.)
