Background

There are so many good reasons to quit smoking. Most smokers know that it’s in their best interest to quit. Actually quitting, however, is a whole other thing.

Researchers are evaluating a new approach for counseling in smoking cessation that focuses on improving mood and using personal strengths. The study will also be evaluating whether text messaging  with participants can help them stay on track with their efforts to stop smoking.

This study seeks men and women who smoke at least 5 cigarettes per day. Participants are required to attend 6 counseling sessions by video conferencing  over a 2 month period, along with 3 follow-up sessions, at 12, 26 and 52 weeks after starting the study.  You may be compensated up to $140 for participating in this study.
