Addiction Jan 10, 2020

Nollen NL, et al. - Researchers investigated the effectiveness of smoking cessation counseling alone or in combination with participant's choice of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in black nondaily smokers (NDS). Study participants included non-Hispanic black adult NDS who received 12 weeks of in-person and telephone smoking cessation counseling with NRT (n = 185) or counseling alone (n = 93). Outcomes revealed that NRT and counseling alone did not result in different abstinence rates among black nondaily smokers in the United States. A greater increase in days abstinent and reduction in cigarettes was noted in correlation with NRT with no evidence of compensation from other sources of nicotine.
