Written in English
About the Edition
Methods. Open-labelled 10-week trial with 9 weeks of NRT treatment. Daily diaries and 6 study visits explored changes in cigarettes use and ECO.Background. Research using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) as a smoking reduction aid in smokers with a high prevalence of current psychiatric disease, previous substance use disorders and current illicit drug use is lacking.Conclusions. Smokers reduced tobacco use using NRT. Craving, subjective effects of satisfaction, motivation to use cigarettes and dependence may mediate response. Further exploration of NRT as a harm reduction strategy is warranted.Results. Cigarette use and ECO level was significantly lower during treatment (p<0.001). Craving, positive subjective effects of smoking, motivation to use cigarettes were all significantly lower during treatment.Hypothesis. NRT will help smokers reduce cigarette use and expired carbon monoxide (ECO) levels.Objective. To examine the utility of NRT as a smoking reduction aid in a highly co-morbid treatment-seeking population.
