Research Opportunity

Despite advances in treatment of nicotine dependence, many people who quit smoking relapse within one year. Researchers at CPMC Research Institute are developing a new program to improve people’s chances of staying smoke-free once they’ve decided to quit – and avoid replacing smoking with other unhealthy behaviors - by learning mindfulness-based approaches to dealing with cravings and stress. Eligible participants who have recently quit smoking will be asked to attend a free 6-week training program, and to complete assessments three times so that the research team can evaluate the effectiveness of the classes.
