To examine the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary impact of using NicoBloc compared to nicotine lozenges

Study summary:

Smoking remains the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S. with approximately 18% of the population continuing to smoke. However, smoking is concentrated in disadvantaged populations where the prevalence of smoking may be as high as 70-80 %. Participants will receive a sampling experience (use of nicotine lozenges or NicoBloc during sessions) with counseling focused around their experience of using these interventions, including side effects and smoking cessation expectancies.
