  Purpose

This is a pilot research study examining two types of behavioral counseling along with the nicotine patch for smoking cessation. The study is designed to find out whether one of these counseling interventions is more effective for smoking cessation among individuals with sleep problems. The study has three parts: 1) an intake session; 2) a 10-week treatment phase, and 3) a 1-month follow-up.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Smoking Abstinence [ Time Frame: 1 Week ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To develop effect size estimates for smoking cessation defined as point prevalence smoking abstinence over the last 7 days of treatment and follow-up (i.e., 4 weeks post-treatment) comparing smokers in the two counseling conditions.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Self-Control to Resist Smoking Cues [ Time Frame: 4 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To develop an effect size estimate for changes in self-control to resist smoking cues from baseline to the day before quitting smoking comparing smokers in the two counseling conditions.

  • Sleep Efficiency [ Time Frame: 10 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To develop an effect size estimate for changes in diary measures of sleep efficiency over the entire treatment period comparing smokers in the two counseling conditions.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Cognitive-Behavioral Counseling
The intervention consists of 8 sessions provided over 10 weeks. Counseling commences 4 weeks before quitting smoking. Participants will also receive the nicotine patch for 6 weeks starting on the day of quit date.
Behavioral: Cognitive-Behavioral Counseling
The cognitive-behavioral intervention integrates standard smoking counseling adapted from the American Lung Association Freedom from Smoking program along with cognitive-behavioral techniques for improving insomnia.
Other Name: CBT-I + SC
Placebo Comparator: Smoking Cessation Counseling
The intervention consists of 8 sessions provided over 10 weeks. Counseling commences 4 weeks before quitting smoking. Participants will also receive the nicotine patch for 6 weeks starting on the day of quit date.
Behavioral: Smoking Cessation Counseling
The smoking cessation counseling intervention will incorporate standard psychoeducational and behavioral smoking counseling techniques adapted from the American Lung Association Freedom from Smoking program.
Other Name: SC

Detailed Description:

This is a developmental study to: 1) create and test an integrated cognitive-behavioral smoking cessation and insomnia intervention with 30 smokers who report current insomnia. Participants are randomized to 1 of 2 counseling conditions. The cognitive-behavioral intervention provides standard care smoking counseling along with counseling to address insomnia. The smoking counseling intervention provides standard care smoking counseling adapted from the American Lung Association Freedom from Smoking program. Efficacy data from this trial will be used to determine effect size estimates for biologically confirmed self-reported point prevalence smoking abstinence at the end of treatment and 1 month after completing treatment. Changes in sleep efficiency and self-control to resist smoking urges will also be examined. If the effect size estimates are sufficiently large and medically important to pursue a definitive trial, these data will be used to propose a full scale large study.
