The Mindfulness Training for Smokers study follows a randomized controlled design with 240 total participants. Both the study group and the control group will be enrolled in the Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line and will receive four weeks of nicotine patches. The control group will receive the Quit Line intervention alone where as the study group will receive the Quit Line intervention plus the Mindfulness for Smokers Intervention. The Mindfulness for Smokers Intervention provides four weeks of instruction in mindfulness meditation followed by four weeks of participation in a weekly meditation group. The principal hypothesis for the study is that Mindfulness for Smokers plus the Quit Line will lead to significantly higher rates of smoking cessation at 6 months than the Quit Line alone.

Both the study group and the control group will be enrolled in the Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line, will receive four weeks of nicotine patches, and receive phone based counseling through the Quit Line. The control group n = 120 will receive the Quit Line intervention alone where as the study group n = 120 will receive the Quit Line intervention plus the Mindfulness Training for Smokers (MTS) Intervention. Mindfulness Training for Smokers provides 4 weeks of mindfulness meditation instruction followed by entry into a MTS meditation group. The total time for the study including recruitment, intervention and participant follow-up for N = 240 will be four years. The study will recruit subjects from the Dane county region through the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CRTI). Recruitment will take place through the television and radio advertisements (appendix). In addition, the Wisconsin Quit Line web site will provide a link to the MTS study. With this link, quit line coaches will have a brief description of the study (see appendix) and will provide contact information for the study. Finally, the MTS web site (url: www.sittoquit.org) will provide basic introductory information available to the general public. The principal hypothesis for the study is that MTS plus Quit Line will lead to significantly higher rates of smoking cessation at 6 months than use of the Quit Line alone.
