The primary objective of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of this type of
smoking cessation program by comparing a treatment group with a control group.
A secondary objective of this research is to explore relations between impulsive behavior and
smoking-cessation success among treatment-seeking teens participating in a quit-smoking
Hypothesis 1. A greater proportion of the participants in the treatment condition will be
verified as abstinent from smoking during the course of treatment than participants of the
Hypothesis 2. It is hypothesized that teens who do not successfully stop smoking (or who drop
out of the treatment program) will be more impulsive (from measures taken just prior to
treatment) than those who do successfully stop or significantly reduce rate of smoking.
