Brief supportive telephone counseling is a promising adjunct to self-help smoking cessation programs.
This article reports rates of participation, predictors of participation, and content of telephone counseling calls with nonvolunteer smokers who were identified through health surveys administered to a random sample of enrollees in a health maintenance organization.
Eighty-six percent of smokers accepted at least one of three counselor calls; 66% accepted all three calls.
Baseline characteristics associated with acceptance of calls included being female and greater average length of time to the first cigarette of the day.
Acceptance did not differ significantly by stage of cessation.
