(Active Comparator)
Participants randomized to the Usual Care condition will receive standard care following recruitment.
usual care
Standard care includes routine assessment of smoking behavior and brief clinical intervention. Smoking counseling for all participants in the current study will be completed by a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist consisting consists of brief counseling (<15 minutes) based on the 5 A's Clinical Practice Guidelines; Ask about tobacco use, Advise to quit, Assess willingness to make a quit attempt, Assist in quit attempt, Arrange for follow-up (Fiore et al., 2008). Patients receive information for local and state smoking resources (e.g., Quitline), pharmacotherapy options, and if interested, assistance with obtaining a prescription for pharmacotherapy. Follow-up with patients occurs at 2-weeks, only among those who are prescribed smoking medications (i.e., Varenicline, Bupropion).
(Active Comparator)
Participants randomized to the Smoking Relapse Prevention for Cancer Patients (SRP-CaP) intervention will receive standard care plus our self-help smoking-relapse prevention materials.
smoking relapse prevention for cancer patients (srp-cap)
The proposed multimodal intervention consists of a series of easy-to-read relapse prevention booklets (Forever Free) that have shown to be efficacious with a general smoking population (Brandon et al., 2000; 2004), and digital video disk (DVD) customized to the needs of cancer patients (to be developed in Year One).

Primary Outcomes

Number of Participants with Relapse at 6 Months
time frame: 6 Months
Number of Participants with Relapse at 12 Months
time frame: 12 Months

Inclusion Criteria: - Have smoked at least 10 cigarettes per day for at least one year prior to cancer diagnosis - Able to read and write English - Able to give informed consent - Have quit smoking after receiving their cancer diagnosis - Have not quit greater than 3 months prior Exclusion Criteria: - Individuals who have been abstinent for greater than 3 months are not included because they are less likely to relapse.
