Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to examine the the efficacy of adjunctive nicotine replacement therapy when used in combination with the contingency management (CM) + cognitive behavioral therapy intervention. Subjects will be randomly assigned to receive either a nicotine transdermal patch or a placebo patch as well as being randomly assigned to receive either CM or no CM; all subjects will receive cognitive behavioral therapy. We hypothesize that that subjects receiving both active nicotine patch and CM will have higher rates of abstinence from tobacco than subjects in the other groups.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Abstinence Rates at the End of Treatment [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Our primary outcome will be point prevalence abstinence at the end of the treatment period defined as any self-report of cigarette use during the seven days prior to the last appointment confirmed by urine analysis.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Continuous Abstinence During Treatment [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    We will also examine continuous abstinence during the six week treatment period by urine analysis each week.
