Menthol cigarettes are popular among smokers, but menthol smokers have been shown to have a harder time quitting smoking. More severe withdrawal symptoms in menthol cigarette smokers versus non-menthol cigarette smokers may contribute to less-successful smoking cessation outcomes among menthol smokers. The purpose of this project is to examine whether menthol cigarette smokers showed more severe withdrawal symptoms, as measured by the Minnesota Withdrawal Scale (MNWS) and the Questionnaire on Smoking Urges - Brief (QSU), than non-menthol smoking counterparts during short-term smoking abstinence.
This research was supported by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
