Residents physicians who use MI techniques have a tremendous effect on patients’ smoking behaviors, and participants in the MI groups smoked fewer cigarettes, had higher self-efficacy, and had lower nicotine dependence scores.

Mood Management Intervention for College Smokers With Elevated Depressive Symptoms: A Pilot Study

Findings demonstrate the utility of this intervention for smoking reduction and maintenance of reductions over time among a population of college students with elevated depressive symptomatology.

An Adaptation of Motivational Interviewing Increases Quit Attempts in Smokers With Serious Mental Illness.

A brief adaptation of MI with personalized feedback appears to be a promising approach for increasing quit attempts in smokers with SMI, but future research is required to determine how to best help smokers withSMI to attain sustained abstinence.

A Pilot Randomized Clinical Trial of Brief Interventions to Encourage Quit Attempts In Smokers from Socioeconomic Disadvantage.

It was found that subjective financial strain moderated the effect of condition on change in cigarette consumption where NRT sampling was more effective for participants reporting less financial strain.

Predictors of Abstinence from Smoking: A Retrospective Study of Male College Students Enrolled in a Smoking Cessation Service

It is suggested that provision of visiting smoking cessation services can be an active intervention platform for college student smokers who need professional assistance or support and may result in increased long-term abstinence rates in such students.

Motivational interviewing for smoking cessation.

Motivational interviewing may assist people to quit smoking, but the results should be interpreted with caution, due to variations in study quality, treatment fidelity, between-study heterogeneity and the possibility of publication or selective reporting bias.

Efficacy of an experiential, dissonance-based smoking intervention for college students delivered via the internet.

The efficacy of a theory-based intervention delivered over the Internet for increasing motivation to quit and smoking abstinence among college smokers has potential for translation and implementation as a secondary prevention strategy for college-aged smokers.

Cognitive complexity of clients and counsellors during motivation-based treatment for smoking cessation: an observational study on occasional smokers in a US college sample

Results suggest that cognitive complexity is uniquely associated with successful quitting in MI controlled trials, and thus may be an important variable to more fully explore during treatment.

Motivational interviewing for smoking cessation.

Evaluating the efficacy of Motivational Interviewing for smoking cessation compared with no treatment, in addition to another form of smoking cessation treatment, and compared with other types ofsmoking cessation treatment found low-certainty evidence, limited by risk of bias and imprecision was found.

Making tailored, self-help programs widely available on campus may be an effective way to provide smoking-cessation support to a large segment of the young adult population.

A randomised controlled trial of motivational interviewing for smoking cessation.

The results of the study show that motivational interviewing is more effective than brief advice for giving up smoking.

Motivational Interviewing as a Smoking Cessation Intervention for Patients With Cancer: Randomized Controlled Trial

Future efforts to improve smoking cessation in this patient group might focus on the delivery of more direct methods for encouraging spouse cessation and support to the patient in quitting, and the use of bupropion (Zyban) as an adjunct to cessation for this heavy smoking patient group.

It is suggested that nicotine gum plus MI were not effective for smoking cessation in low-income housing and programs are needed to enhance the effectiveness of pharmacotherapy and counseling in underserved populations.

Motivational consulting versus brief advice for smokers in general practice: a randomized trial

Motivational consulting produces better outcomes than brief advice, especially among those not 'ready to change', which supports the stages of change model.
