Detailed Description:

This study randomly assigns smokers who do not have a quit date set to either a smoking reduction grop or usual care group. The smoking reduction group receives behavioral counseling on smoking reduction and nicotine patch and/or gum to reduce the number of cigarettes smoked per day by at least 50%. The usual care group is given brief advice to quit smoking and referral to local cessation services. To be included in the study, participants must have peripheral arterial disease (defined as ankle Brachial Index equal to or less than 0.85 or history of prior revascularization) and they must be daily smokers (defined as at least 1 cigarette, cigar, or tobacco pipe daily). Participants complete questionnaires that measure mood, functional ability, smoking history, and motivation to quit smoking. Participants will be followed in this study for up to 24 months.
