Project description: 

The Quit Smoking Study is a research study being conducted by the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) at UNSW Sydney. The study is looking at different types of nicotine replacement products to see which is the most effective at helping low-income smokers quit.

The products included in the study are:

  • Vaporised nicotine product (VNP) also known as an electronic cigarette, e-cigarette or vape
  • Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) including gum or lozenges

Smokers enrolled in the study will receive free nicotine replacement products to help them quit. Participants will be randomly allocated to receive either eight weeks of nicotine gum/lozenges or a vaporiser with eight weeks supply of liquid nicotine.

Recruitment for this study is now open.
