Objective: The study aimed to examine the association of the fear of missing out (FoMO) on the symptoms of attention deficit-hyperactivity and impulsivity in terms of gender, age, and tobacco dependence. 
Materials and Methods: The study sample consisted of a total of 732 individuals. Of the participants, 425 were females and 307 were males. There were 258 smokers and 474 non-smokers in the study sample. Participants were administered a Socio-demographic Questionnaire, The Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Self-Report Scale (ASRS), The Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11), and Üsküdar FoMO Scale to collect data. The Mann Whitney U test was used to test the differences in terms of gender, age, and smoking status. Spearman correlation analysis and a linear regression analysis were performed to examine the correlation between the scales. 
Results: The intensity of the FoMO was not variable in regard to gender or smoking status. There was a significant difference in terms of the age variable. The model in the regression analysis, which evaluated the features of age, gender, smoking status, attention deficit, and impulsivity was found out to be statistically significant. 
Conclusions: The analysis of the data revealed that severity of the FoMO was increased with ASRS scores and decreased with age. 

Amaç: Çalışma, gelişmeleri kaçrıma korkusunun, cinsiyet, yaş ve tütün bağımlılığı açısından dikkat eksikliği-hiperaktivite ve dürtüsellik semptomlarıyla olan ilişkisini incelemeyi amaçlamıştır.
Materyal ve Metot: Çalışma örneği toplam 732 kişiden oluşmaktadır. Katılımcıların 425'i kadın, 307'si erkekti. Çalışma örnekleminde 258 sigara içen ve 474 sigara içmeyen kişi vardı. Katılımcılara bir sosyodemografik anket, Yetişkin Dikkat Eksikliği Hiperaktivite Bozukluğu Öz-Rapor Ölçeği (ASRS), Barratt Dürtüsellik Ölçeği (BIS-11) ve Üsküdar Fomo Ölçeği uygulanmıştır. Cinsiyet, yaş ve sigara içme durumu arasındaki farklılıkları test etmek için Mann Whitney U testi kullanıldı. Ölçekler arasındaki ilişkiyi incelemek için Spearman korelasyon analizi ve doğrusal regresyon analizi yapıldı.
Bulgular: Gelişmeleri Kaçırma korkusunun yoğunluğu cinsiyet veya sigara içme durumu ilişkili değilken, yaş açısından anlamlı fark vardı. Regresyon analizinde yaş, cinsiyet, sigara içme durumu, dikkat eksikliği ve dürtüsellik özelliklerini değerlendiren modelin istatistiksel olarak anlamlı olduğu bulundu. Verilerin analizi gelişmeleri kaçırma korkusu şiddetinin dikkat eksikliği ve hiperaktivite skorlarıyla arttığı ancak yaşla birlikte azaldığını ortaya koydu.
Sonuç: Çalışma sonuçları, dikkat eksikliği hiperaktivitesinin özellikleri konusunda eksiklik korkusu ile doğrusal bir ilişki olduğunu göstermiştir.
