Behavioral: Practical Counseling
To ensure that treatment effects are not due to the longer counseling intervention and additional alcohol intervention workbook in the Alcohol Intervention plus Standard Care condition, we will provide additional smoking cessation advice that will not be specific to alcohol use and an additional smoking cessation workbook for participants in the Practical Counseling plus Standard Care condition. Consistent with the Clinical Practice Guideline Update, we will include 5 minutes of practical counseling, which has been shown empirically to be effective in improving rates of smoking cessation.
