    Article - En anglais



    This study was undertaken to explore smoking patterns and attitudes that influence smoking cessation and relapse among African Americans.


    Baseline data from eight Community Intervention Trial for Smoking Cessation (COMMIT) sites were analyzed.


    Compared with Whites, African Americans, who smokes less than 25 cigarettes per day were 1.6 times more likely to smoke within 10 minutes of awakening (a behavioral indicator of nicotine dependence), adjusting for education, age, and gender (OR=1.2 for heavier, smokers).
