Can Mindfulness Help You Quit Smoking?

April 11, 2012   Nicotine dependence is a tough addiction to beat. About half of current U.S. smokers actually gave up cigarettes for more than a day within the past year, but then relapsed. So it’s good news when a quit-smoking approach increases the odds of long-term success. And it’s great news when that approach blows the gold standard treatment out of the water. That’s what happened in a recent study of mindfulness for smoking cessation. The study, published in Drug and Alcohol Dependence in 2011, included 88 adults who smoked at least half a pack per day and wanted to quit. Participants were randomly assigned to eight sessions of either mindfulness training or a standard quit-smoking program.
