To accomplish significant reductions in smoking by the year 2000, special populations with relatively low rates of smoking cessation must be reached and helped to quit smoking.
These populations are most often groups in which traditional approaches to smoking cessation have not been successful.
Focus groups were conducted with black women who were residents of Chicago public housing developments.
The purposes were to assess factors related to smoking and the women's willingness to participate in cessation programs.
The findings reveal several barriers to smoking cessation.
These barriers are linked to the difficult daily existence and environment of these women and to a lack of social support that would help them to achieve smoking cessation.
