Introduction:: Quitlines (QLs) provide effective smoking cessation treatment. The most cost-effective protocol for nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) has not been established. The current study compares self-reported 7-day abstinence rates among light to moderate smokers (≤20 cigarettes per day [CPD]) when a state QL reduced NRT supplies from 8 to 4 weeks.
