Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To examine the association of health care access/use, trust of physician advice, and depressive symptoms with the ability to sustain smoking cessation.

METHODS:

Data from a nationally representative sample were used to compare current smokers (n = 1246), sustained quitters (n = 1502), and never smokers (n = 3277).

RESULTS:

Sustained quitters reported fewer depressive symptoms (OR = 0.92) and were more likely to have health insurance (OR = 1.75) and a usual source of care (OR= 1.40) that they had seen within the last year (OR = 2.16) and that they were more likely to trust (OR = 1.40).

CONCLUSIONS:

Identification of these factors may inform providers' efforts to target and assist in smoking cessation.
