Using a Quitline Plus Low-Cost Nicotine Replacement Therapy to Help Disadvantaged Smokers to Quit

Wednesday, March 31, 2010  
Miller CL, Sedivy V. Tob Control. 2009 Apr;18(2):144-9. Epub 2009 Jan 8.

This study tested an intervention designed to motivate low-income smokers to try to quit. The intervention group received standard quitline services plus very low-cost NRT, while the control group got quitline services alone. The offer of subsidized NRT recruited twice as many low-income smokers than the offer of the quitline alone. Quit rates were higher in the intervention group at 3 and 6 months, but not at 12 months. The authors conclude that low-income smokers were easily recruited to call the quitline through the offer of free NRT, and that those using the quitline with or without NRT achieved quit outcomes comparable to other studies of "mainstream” smokers.
