Smokers who want to quit may first read this…

A pioneering study conducted by University of Pittsburgh psychologist and Professor Saul Shiffman has revealed that people who are using the nicotine patch to quit smoking //are less likely to bounce back to a complete relapse, if they continued to wear the patch. The study titled Analyzing Milestones in Smoking Cessation: Illustration in a Nicotine Patch Trial in Adult Smokers is due to be published on May 2 in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology.

Shiffman and his associates sought to analyze whether the patch met its desired purpose along with recording treatment milestones that included any slip-ups in the program. Smokers in the study were using either a high-dose NicoDerm CQ nicotine patch (35 mg, 2/3 stronger than the currently marketed 21 mg patches) or a placebo patch. The 324 participants used hand-held computers as electronic diaries, which enabled them to record exactly when they experienced a strong urge to puff including whether or not they succumbed to temptation! The finding revealed that people, who wore the active patch after giving in to the urges, were nearly 4 to 6 times less likely to succumb to the momentary urges of wanting to smoke.//

The study reveled that, the nicotine patch greatly helped in averting slip ups and did go a long way in ensuring that any slip up did not become a full blown relapse. This study is particularly relevant in understanding the motive of action which will help in improving the efficacy of addiction treatments.
