Welcome

Thank you for your interest in the University of Vermont Nicotine Patch Study.

The Nicotine Patch Study is conducted by the University of Vermont and sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. The study is designed to answer the following question: If a smoker tries to quit smoking using nicotine patches and then smokes one or more cigarettes, is it better to continue patch use or stop using the patches? In the study, smokers will be assigned by chance to either continue or stop nicotine patch use if they smoke after a quit attempt. We will supply free nicotine patches and free telephone counseling to help smokers quit. Answer the questions below to see if you are eligible for the study. All the information you provide will be kept confidential. If there are any questions you do not wish to answer, you can end the survey and not participate in the study.
