In this pilot project, 41 female weight-concerned smokers were randomly assigned to receive either 12 group sessions of cognitive behavioral therapy for body image concerns or 12 group sessions for weight management. All subjects received open-label bupropion SR, 300 mg daily, exercise instruction, and weekly behavioral counseling for tobacco cessation. At week 12, 7(35%) of the body image participants had 7-day point prevalence smoking abstinence, compared to 5(24%) of the participants in the weight management group (p=0.505).
