  Purpose

This study is directed at decreasing home environmental tobacco smoking (ETS) exposure with a novel approach of adoption of home smoking restrictions. This will be done by providing the cohabitating smoker and non-smoker with biomarker feedback documenting exposure to ETS. The intent is to identify an intervention strategy(ies) to reduce ETS exposure.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of Self-Reported Home Smoking Restrictions - Active Counseling [ Time Frame: From baseline to week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Received self-help brochure and biomarker feedback from urine collected from non-smoking adult in home. Outcome criteria categorized into 3 areas: establishment of a complete ban (defined as no one allowed to smoke anywhere, ever), some restrictions (smoking allowed in some places or some time), and no restrictions (smoking permitted anywhere, no rules).

  • Comparison of Self-Reported Home Smoking Restrictions - Control Group [ Time Frame: From baseline to week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Received only self-help brochure on home ETS exposure. Outcome criteria categorized into 3 areas: establishment of a complete ban (defined as no one allowed to smoke anywhere, ever), some restrictions (smoking allowed in some places or some time), and no restrictions (smoking permitted anywhere, no rules).

Detailed Description:

This is a two-group interventional trial targeting cohabitating smokers and non-smokers. Participants will be randomized to the control condition or biomarker feedback group.
