Berg CJ, Schauer GL. Journal of Environmental and Public Health Volume 2012 (2012), Article ID 248541, 8 pages.
This study developed and tested the feasibility, acceptability, and potential effectiveness of an online intervention targeting college student nondaily smokers. The intervention was 4 weeks long with weekly contacts. Among the 31 participants, all completed the trial and 6 week follow-up. 71% of participants were satisfied with the program. Increases were seen in the number of people reporting not smoking in the past 30 days and reducing their smoking over the course of the trial. Some also reported being quit despite recent smoking. The authors call for additional research to understand how nondaily smokers define cessation, improve measures for cessation, and examine theoretical constructs related to smoking among this population.
