Smoking Study

I?m looking for participants who smoke at least 5 cigarettes a day, and who would like to give up smoking in the future.

This term, I?ll be testing on Saturday 29th November, Friday 5th December and Saturday 6th December.

If eligible, the study involves a one-off visit (Sidgwick site) lasting just over an hour, in which participants complete questionnaires, a computer task and learn about managing their smoking cravings. There are also two very brief follow-up phone calls, 24 hours and 7 days after participation.

Participants are paid 12.50 for their time.

The next step is for people who are interested to contact me asap on camsmokingstudy@gmail.com with a contact phone number.
