Additional Background Information

Nondaily smoking has a substantial negative impact on your health. Mortality risk is increased by 72% due to smoking nondaily. There have been many research studies on quitting smoking, and the literature supports many methods. But very few studies have tested materials that can help nondaily smokers. 

Quitting cigarettes on your own can be difficult. The Center for Addiction Medicine (CAM) at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) wants to test three methods that may help nondaily smokers to quit smoking cigarettes.
