Active Comparator: Mindfulness Training for Smokers
Mindfulness Training for Smokers (MTS) is a 7-week intervention that provides instruction in mindfulness very similar to the way it is taught in Mindfulnes-Based Stress Reduction. In addition MTS provides mindfulness training targeted to specific smoking relapse challenges. The MTS intervention was designed around a weekly curriculum that provides instruction to help participants learn practices including mindfulness meditation, mindful walking and mindful eating. MTS participants are instructed to practice meditation 30 minutes per day with a guided meditation CD.

Active Comparator: Interactive Learning for Smokers
Interactive Learning for Smokers (ILS) is a 7-week intervention that provides a closely matched active control group for MTS, but with substantive education and skills training for smoking cessation. To this end, ILS combines elements of two smoking cessation programs, the American Lung Association, Freedom from Smoking program and The Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center program. ILS participants were asked to practice 30 minutes of silent non-directed walking per day throughout the intervention and were instructed to use non-directed walking for relaxation, stress reduction and as a strategy for managing urges and withdrawal symptoms.
