Abstract

This prospective study investigated variables potentially related to participation and success in a worksite smoking modification program. Variables assessed included demographic factors (gender, age, years smoked), smoking habit and pattern variables (nicotine dependence, number of cigarettes per day) and measures of stress and social support. Older subjects who were heavier smokers were more likely to participate in the program. However, strength of habit and age were inversely associated with success at quitting smoking (at posttreatment) and with smoking reduction among nonabstinent subjects (at the 6-month follow-up).
