Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Subjects who achieved smoking abstinence and give a bupropion-placebo (sugar) pill for 44 weeks in order to prevent relapse to smoking. Brief Behavioral Counseling is also given during this time.
placebo pill to match (look alike) the 150 mg pill of the bupropion given in the am for 3 days and then two pills (one in the morning and one at night) for the subsequent 44 mg.
Active Comparator: Bupropion
Subjects who achieved smoking abstinence and give bupropion (300 mg/day) for 44 weeks in order to prevent relapse to smoking. Brief Behavioral Counseling is also given during this time.
Drug: bupropion (Wellbutrin)
1 pill in the am of 150 mg of Bupropion
1 pill (150 mg) in the AM and one in the PM for a total of 300 mg per day for subsequent 44 weeks.
- Will bupropion reduce relapse to smoking compared to placebo [ Time Frame: 52 weeks and 76 weeks ]Determine if long-term use of bupropion will reduce the rate of relapse to smoking compared to placebo in recovering alcoholics who achieved initial abstinence from smoking with nicotine patch therapy projected to achieve 100% replacement.
- Does matching the dose of nicotine patches to nicotine levels help increase smoking abstinence [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]Determine the week 8 smoking cessation rate in recovering alcoholics provided a nicotine patch dose projected to achieve 100% replacement.
