Five Persian speaking patients described this questionnaire understandable and easy in pre-test stage. Cronbach's alpha was used to measure internal consistency. Results: The average (SD) age of participants were 40 (14). 58% of individuals were men. 62% of individuals had used problem- focused coping. The most abused substances were cigarettes (78%) and opium (42%). 6% of substance abusers had thought about self elimination 5 times or more, in the last year. 5% of substance abusers had attempted to serious suicide. Tendency to commit suicide was more in men, substance abusers and participants who used emotion-focused coping style, based on regression model. Average score of suicide tendency was significantly higher in substance abusers (B=2.196, p-value=0.007). Discussion and conclusion: Chronic disease is a crisis and patients need to acquire appropriate methods to cope with it, especially in substance abuser patients and patients suffering from psychological problems like suicide; otherwise, treatment procedure would be affected. Therefore, precise recognition of coping strategies in chronic pulmonary patients with substance abuse is necessary by cooperation of psychiatric and psychological team along with internal physician team in hospitals because medical treatment, along with psychological problems of patients in current project is not sufficient alone, and undoubtedly, patient`s quality of life and even life expectancy might decrease seriously
