Abstract

The present results provide tentative support for the hypothesis that an intensive program of risk education and behavioral skills-training can assist pregnant women to stop smoking. The absolute level of abstinence achieved - both during the remaining period of pregnancy and postpartum - ranks well above other results reported in the literature. The data further suggest that risk had been substantially reduced for some participants.
