UAB Investigates Smoking Cessation

Drug-involved smokers may be less motivated to quit smoking because they expect smoking cessation to result in negative outcomes, such as increased drug use. Dr. Peter S. Hendricks, assistant professor in the department of health behavior at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health, recently studied non-treatment-seeking adult smokers who reported drug involvement, their expectancies for smoking cessation via the Smoking Abstinence Questionnaire (SAQ), and their motivation to quit smoking.
