BIZARRO, Lisiane; PEUKER, Ana Carolina  e  CASTRO, Elisa Kern de. Self-regulatory strategies to longer nicotine abstinence maintenance in former smokers. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.1, pp. 02-11. ISSN 1808-5687.

Self-regulating strategies are useful to coping with high risk situations, craving, and the unpleasant nicotine withdrawal symptoms, and are therefore associated with better outcomes in the smoking cessation process, including prolonged abstinence maintenance. Variables associated with the use of self-regulated strategies in the maintenance of nicotine abstinence were investigated. The participants were 62 former smokers (m = 50 years, SD = 11), of both genders, with eight years of abstinence in average, who filled out questionnaires about smoking behavior and psychiatric symptomology. Knowing the factors that can contribute to the maintenance of nicotine abstinence is essential for the development of cost-effective treatment models for assistance to smoking cessation.
