The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of a tailored web-based cessation program, an adaptation of Project Quit, for a racially and ethnically diverse sample of young adult smokers from lower SES backgrounds.
Aim 1. Determine if young adult smokers from low SES backgrounds will use a tailored web-based cessation program and find it an acceptable means for quitting.
Aim 2. Identify the psychosocial variables relevant to young adult smokers from low SES backgrounds (e.g., financial stress, role overload, depressive symptoms) that contribute to variability in utilization and acceptability of the web-based program.
Aim 3. Use individual interviews to determine how to increase utilization and acceptability of the tailored web-based program, and maximize its appeal to young adult smokers from low SES backgrounds.
Participants are smokers enrolled in post-secondary vocational/technical programs at three Texas schools who want to quit smoking
