A Smoking Cessation Treatment for Adult Women


Nicotine Dependence

What is the purpose of this trial?

The purpose of this study is to develop and pilot test a smoking cessation counseling that focuses on the perceived risks of quitting smoking (e.g., weight gain, managing cravings and negative affect, loss of enjoyment).

Aim 1: To develop the risk-based smoking cessation intervention.

Aim 2: To examine whether manualized smoking cessation counseling about the perceived risks of quitting is feasible to administer and acceptable to adult women who want to quit smoking.

Aim 3: To examine smoking cessation outcomes for women who receive the risk-based treatment in comparison to standard smoking counseling. It is expected that women who receive risk-based counseling will show better quit rates and a longer time to relapse than women who receive standard treatment.
