Abstract

This pilot study tested the efficacy of an Internet-administered smoking cessation treatment for overweight/obese smokers. Participants were 54 community volunteers with overweight/obesity who were regular smokers. Treatment consisted of 12 weeks of nicotine replacement therapy and randomization to Internet-administered cognitive behavioral treatment or health education. In-person assessments of key outcomes occurred at baseline, post-treatment, and at 24-week follow-up. Cessation rates did not differ across the two treatments (25.9% vs 18.5%). Participants receiving cognitive behavioral treatment gained less weight when abstinent than those receiving the standard treatment. Larger studies are needed to replicate these findings.
