Summary

Tobacco smoking is the leading cause of preventable death worldwide, and the need for new and improved treatment approaches is further highlighted by the fact that only 5% of smokers who make a quit attempt can maintain abstinence for at least one year. In an effort to reduce relapse risk the proposed study will develop a personalized intervention that will deliver evidence-based treatment in real-time through mobile phones to meet the dynamic needs of patients engaged in a quit attempt. Given the high rates of mobile phone ownership, this intervention has great promise for increasing access to smoking cessation/relapse prevention services, thereby benefiting public health.
