Intervention Details:
    Drug: Nicotine
    Subjects received an amount of "liquid nicotine cigarettes" (containing 1.5mg of nicotine each) based on the amount of nicotine the subjects had been receiving from cigarettes. The number of "liquid nicotine cigarettes" received by each subject was reviewed, and adjusted (if necessary), every two weeks for the duration of the 12-week study.
    Other Name: Smoke-Break, liquid cigarette, liquid nicotine cigarette
    Device: Smoke-Break nicotine delivery device
    The Smoke-Break nicotine delivery device is a "liquid nicotine cigarette" designed to mimic the act of smoking. It is an NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) similar in concept to the nicotine patch, gum, and lozenge, except the nicotine is delivered in a way designed to duplicate the cigarette smoking experience. The Smoke-Break nicotine delivery device is non-invasive.
    Other Name: Smoke-Break, liquid cigarette, liquid nicotine cigarette
