FSU researcher lands $3.3 million grant to help smokers kick habit
Date:12/4/2007

tivity actually begin smoking in a misguided attempt to assuage these feelings, while others develop anxiety sensitivity after they pick up the habit in response to the effects of nicotine on their bodies, Schmidt said. Either way, many of these anxiety-sensitive smokers find that withdrawal symptoms cause them to be even more anxious and panicky -- thwarting their attempts to quit or triggering a relapse.

Schmidt and Zvolenskys cessation plan involves four one-on-one sessions. The program includes education, coping skills and anxiety reduction strategies, along with nicotine replacement therapy, such as the patch.

We have two inter-related goals, Schmidt said. The first is to see whether combining some of what we know from our anxiety treatments with the state-of-the-art smoking cessation treatments will enhance our ability to help people quit smoking, and the longer term goal is to determine if these treatments will prevent the development of anxiety problems like panic attacks.

If the program is successful, it would reduce the public health burden of both anxiety and smoking-related problems, Schmidt said. In addition, the results of the study are expected to increase knowledge about the role of smoking in the development and maintenance of anxiety symptoms, panic attacks and panic disorder and the role that vulnerability to panic attacks plays in smoking relapses.
