Quit Smoking Study

Quit Smoking Study
Project Main Description: 

The Quit Smoking Study is a research study being conducted by the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) at UNSW Sydney. The study is looking at different types of nicotine replacement products to see which is the most effective at helping low-income smokers quit.

The products included in the study are:

  • Vaporised nicotine product (VNP) also known as an electronic cigarette, e-cigarette or vape
  • Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) including gum or lozenges

Smokers enrolled in the study will receive free nicotine replacement products to help them quit. Participants will be randomly allocated to receive either eight weeks of nicotine gum/lozenges or a vaporiser with eight weeks supply of liquid nicotine.

Benefits for participants:

  • Eight weeks of free nicotine replacement products to help quit smoking (either nicotine gum or lozenges OR a vaporiser and liquid nicotine)
  • Reimbursement (cash payment) of up to $150 for time to participate in the study
  • Additional free quit smoking support from the study team
  • No travel required, all information collected over the phone
  • Flexible interview schedule

We are looking for adult smokers who are located within 100km of the Sydney CBD and receive a government pension or healthcare card to take part in the Quit Smoking Study.
