Various theories have proposed mechanisms for drug motivation and relapse. For instance, negative reinforcement theories focus on the alleviation of withdrawal. However, other theories and some data cast doubt on the importance of withdrawal as a motivator of addictive drug use. Using data from a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled smoking cessation treatment study (N=608), this research examined the impact of withdrawal on drug motivation and the ability to maintain abstinence… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Abstinence-related expectancies predict smoking withdrawal effects: implications for possible causal mechanisms
TLDR
Findings are consistent with the notion that expectancies actively shape future experience and are the first to support the suggestion that smokers’ abstinence-related expectancies may be causal agents of withdrawal symptomatology. Expand
Tobacco withdrawal symptoms mediate motivation to reinstate smoking during abstinence.
TLDR
This study provides the first experimental evidence that within-person variation in abstinence impacts motivation to reinstate drug use through withdrawal, and suggested that urge, negative affect, and low positive affect may reflect unique withdrawal-mediated mechanisms underlying tobacco addiction. Expand
Psychological mediators of bupropion sustained-release treatment for smoking cessation.
TLDR
Results provided some support for models of buPropion SR treatment and relapse and suggested that motivational processes may partially account for bupropion SR efficacy. Expand
Evaluating Nicotine Craving, Withdrawal, and Substance Use as Mediators of Smoking Cessation in Cocaine- and Methamphetamine-Dependent Patients.
TLDR
Nicotine craving following a quit attempt may be a useful therapeutic target for increasing the effectiveness of smoking-cessation treatment in substance dependence. Expand
Mechanisms of change in extended cognitive behavioral treatment for tobacco dependence.
TLDR
Extended CBT increased abstinence self-efficacy over the first 52 weeks postcessation and was positively associated with 7-day point prevalence abstinence at week 64 while controlling for treatment condition, and eliminated the independent effect of treatment condition on abstinence. Expand
Anhedonia: Its Dynamic Relations With Craving, Negative Affect, and Treatment During a Quit Smoking Attempt
TLDR
The hypothesis that diminished responsivity to nondrug rewards (ie, anhedonia) is a symptom of the tobacco withdrawal syndrome was supported. Expand
Self-Control Depletion and Nicotine Deprivation as Precipitants of Smoking Cessation Failure: A Human Laboratory Model
TLDR
SCD was found to increase craving among nicotine deprived smokers, which mediated effects on lapse behavior, and may be a viable target for intervention. Expand
Why two smoking cessation agents work better than one: role of craving suppression.
TLDR
Investigation of why smokers receiving combination medication for smoking cessation are more likely to quit smoking than are those who receive either single agent (monotherapy) or placebo found suppression of craving on the quit day significantly mediates the clinical effects of monotherapy and combination smoking pharmacotherapies. Expand
Tobacco withdrawal components and their relations with cessation success
TLDR
Real-time reports revealed different patterns of abstinence-related negative affect and craving and that dimensions of both predict cessation outcome, suggesting that negative Affect and craving dimensions each has motivational significance. Expand
A multi-level analysis of non-significant counseling effects in a randomized smoking cessation trial.
TLDR
Smoking cessation counseling may work by supporting confidence about quitting and reducing perceived difficulty quitting, and the importance of limiting cigarette access, receiving social support, strong motivation and confidence and easing withdrawal distress during cessation efforts. Expand

Mediating mechanisms for the impact of bupropion in smoking cessation treatment.
Several studies have documented the effectiveness of bupropion for smoking cessation, yet little is known about the mechanisms by which it facilitates abstinence. In this placebo-controlledExpand
The effect of bupropion on nicotine craving and withdrawal
TLDR
Bupropion significantly reduced abstinence-associated increases in rated depression, difficulty concentrating, and irritability, and attenuated a decrease in positive affect, and suggested that bupropion might have a positive effect on performance measures during the withdrawal period. Expand
Does reducing withdrawal severity mediate nicotine patch efficacy? A randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Although NRT treatment did significantly decrease withdrawal and craving severity, these reductions only partially accounted for N RT's impact on time to first lapse: the results from a mediation analysis showed that the hazard ratio for NRT, when controlling for withdrawal and crave severity, was only a third to a half lower than the uncontrolled hazard ratioFor NRT alone. Expand
Measures of affect and nicotine dependence predict differential response to smoking cessation treatments.
TLDR
The treatments were differentially effective among subpopulations of smokers: Subjects high in pretreatment negative affect responded best to support counseling; those low in pret treatment negative affectresponded best to skills training. Expand
Smoking withdrawal dynamics in unaided quitters.
TLDR
It is suggested that affect and urge withdrawal symptoms make independent contributions to relapse and that relapse is related to both symptom severity and trajectory. Expand
Effects of nicotine deprivation on craving response covariation in smokers.
TLDR
Findings suggest that, under certain conditions, measures of craving-related processes covary, and nicotine deprivation affects degree of covariation across multiple measures related to craving. Expand
Reduction of abstinence induced withdrawal and craving using nicotine replacement therapy
TLDR
High-dose NRT reduces withdrawal symptoms and craving and can eliminate some symptoms entirely and completely eliminated deprivation-related changes in affect or concentration. Expand
Reduction of abstinence-induced withdrawal and craving using high-dose nicotine replacement therapy
TLDR
High-dose NRT reduces withdrawal symptoms and craving and can eliminate some symptoms entirely and completely eliminated deprivation-related changes in affect or concentration. Expand
The effect of bupropion sustained-release on cigarette craving after smoking cessation.
BACKGROUND Most (>50%) smokers who attempt to stop smoking relapse within the first year of abstinence. The effect of continued use of pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation on relapse rates isExpand
Bupropion for the treatment of nicotine withdrawal and craving
TLDR
Preclinical, human laboratory and clinical trial studies of the effect of bupropion on nicotine withdrawal and craving are reviewed, showing mixed support of its ability to reduce nicotine withdrawal, weight gain during treatment and craving. Expand
