|Description||OBJECTIVES: - Develop and evaluate the efficacy of an interactive, culturally sensitive, individualized, palmtop computer-delivered smoking cessation intervention for African American smokers. - Examine how hypothesized treatment mechanisms mediate the effects of computer-delivered treatment on abstinence. OUTLINE: This is a randomized study. A subset of 20 participants are assigned to arm II for pilot testing. All other participants are randomized to 1 of 2 intervention arms. - Arm I (standard care [SC]): Participants receive nicotine patch therapy on days -5 to 31. Participants also receive a Pathways to Freedom self-help guide and undergo 5 in-person counseling sessions based on the Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence Clinical Practice Guideline. The counseling sessions occur at 12 and 5 days prior to the quit smoking date and at 3, 10, and 31 days after the quit smoking date. - Arm II (computer-delivered treatment [CDT]): Participants receive the same intervention as in arm I. Participants also undergo CDT for 6 weeks comprising 5 modules (quitting strategies; motivation and support; general smoking information; calendars and fun stuff; and daily tips) beginning 12 days prior to the quit smoking date and continuing for 31 days after the quit smoking date. All participants complete questionnaires at baseline, during the counseling sessions, and then at approximately 6 months after the quit smoking date. After completion of study intervention, participants are followed at approximately 6 months. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 500 participants will be accrued for this study.|
