Abstract

Treatment joiners were differentiated from non-joiners when examined across six worksite clinic locations in the Los Angeles area. Predictors examined included preprogram smoking, demographic variables, smoking by significant others, behavioral expectations to quit, and self-efficacy regarding completing treatment and resisting urges to smoke. Non-joiners reported higher preprogram smoking levels and more friends and children who smoked.
