The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility and effects of an evidence-based smoking cessation program among adult smokers. The study will also examine individual differences in response to the intervention program. This study will compare the effects of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) with the effects of general health education (GHE).
Purposes and aims: (1) Examine the effects of CBT for smoking cessation on perceived stress and depressive symptoms in a racially/ethnically diverse sample; (2) test the efficacy of CBT for eliminating smoking cessation disparities; and (3) Examine physiological distress as an underlying mechanism for the effects of CBT on racial/ethnic minority smokers (exploratory).
