The purpose of this study is to determine the percentage of English- and Spanish-speaking
smokers worldwide who can stop smoking using an Internet stop smoking site.
Latinos and non-Latinos are welcome to participate.
We will stop recruitment on March 19, 2011. Participants will be able to use the site until
May 19, 2011.
This is Phase VI of a series of clinical trials comparing various Internet methods to help
smokers quit via the Internet.
Our previous trials have involved randomized assignment. This trial is a participant
preference trial, in which English- and Spanish-speaking smokers will be able to choose the
elements of the site which they would like to use to stop smoking.
Smokers who find our link via search engines or listing on other Web sites may choose to
enter the study.
Participants must be 18 years old to enter the study. Participants will be followed up at 1,
3, 6, and 12 months after entry into the study to determine whether they have stopped
smoking. They will receive an email reminder with a link to our follow-up surveys. We will
stop sending these email reminders on May 19, 2011, when the current Website will close.
Participation is totally voluntary. Participants are free not to provide data or to stop
participating at any time.
