Abstract

Abstract Based on parallels that have been noted between cigarette smoking and alcohol use, recent advances in alcoholism treatment strategies are extrapolated to cigarette smoking treatment. These include: training individuals in self-control strategies, particularly training to deal with stressful situations in alternative ways; continued exploration of the possibility of controlled smoking treatments and determination of the type(s) of individual(s) best suited to such a treatment goal; and, examining variables other than simple abstinence to determine treatment effectiveness.
