Marlboro Smoking Study
Brief Description Of Study
This study looks at how smokers change their smoking behavior when using a study cigarette provided to them by our Center. Participants will be compensated for their time and effort at the end of each session they complete. This is NOT a quit smoking program.
Detailed Study Description
During your participation in this study, you’ll be asked to attend 11 Sessions over a period of approximately 2 months. All study Sessions will occur at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Nicotine Addiction (University City, Philadelphia), every 4-6 days. Between the first two Sessions of the study, you will continue to smoke your own non-menthol Marlboro cigarettes. After the second Session, you will be provided with non-menthol study cigarettes to smoke. You must only smoke the study cigarettes that you are provided throughout the remainder of the study. The study cigarettes are commercially available and may or may not be similar to the brand that you currently smoke. Between every Session, you will be asked to collect all your used cigarette filters in the date labeled baggies provided by our Center and return them at the following Session.
