Smoking behavior has been found in many people with mental health disorders, especially in the male population. However, recent literature that maps out pathways around the mind and its implications has not specifically been identified in men. A systematic search using predetermined criteria to review and empirically evaluate all English-language peer-reviewed data on the mental health implications of smoking behavior in men was conducted. The analysis focused on two topics: smoking behavior as a risk factor for developing mental illness and mental health as a predictor of smoking behavior in the male population. This systematic review was conducted utilising three electronic databases: Pubmed, Wiley Library, and Taylor and Francis. A list of essential search phrases was created to assist in identifying relevant articles. The search criteria employed are 'Smoking Dependence', 'Mental Health', and 'Male or Men'. A total of 1105 studies were identified, out of which 33 papers were selected for review. Smoking behavior in men has various mental health implications, not only limited to behavioral issues but also alterations in neurostructural levels. The associations between mental health and smoking behavior in men are diverse and complex, but still a challenge to explore due to limited reference. More extensive research exploring the psychodynamic and sociocultural factors of smoking behavior in men is necessary to be developed.
