This research is a randomized smoking cessation trial conducted within and specifically personalized for lung cancer screening patients presenting to a lung screening clinic. Novel tobacco treatments for this population are critically needed, given the growing population of lung screening patients. In the proposed study, we will test a gain-framed messaging intervention specifically designed for lung screening patients (vs. unframed messaging), as well as evaluating NRT sampling (vs. no medication).
