  Purpose

Smoking while on nicotine patches will help subjects to reduce their expired carbon monoxide levels from the levels they were before they started using the patch. Subjects will also decrease their daily consumption of cigarettes, change how they smoke the cigarette, and will show reduced reactivity to smoking-related cues and reduced craving.

  • carbon monoxide levels

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • craving
  • cessation

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: September 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2006
Detailed Description:

Subjects who smoke while on an individually dosed tNRT will reduce their expired carbon monoxide levels from pre- to post-treatment conditions. They will also decrease their daily consumption of cigarettes, change their smoking topography, and will show reduced reactivity to smoking-related cues and reduced craving.
