Practicing Self-Control Lowers the Risk of Smoking Lapse
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

The proposed study will investigate the role of self-control in smoking cessation and whether interventions that improve self-control can help reduce the risk of lapsing among smokers who wish to quit. Our model predicts that the regular practice of self-control should lead to a building of strength and a general improvement in self-control performance. Hence, smokers who practice self-control prior to quitting should be more likely to succeed in their cessation attempt than smokers who do not practice self-control
