Abstract

Rapid smoking is generally considered to be the most effective single treatment strategy for the behavioral control of smoking. Unfortunately, its safety has recently been questioned. A new procedure termed focused smoking poses absolutely no health hazard. Six month follow-up data collected from 2 groups of subjects exposed to a comprehensive treatment program which included focused smoking are noteworthy in their own right (55.6% abstentions) and just as promising as earlier versions of the program which included rapid smoking as a treatment component.
