Many people experience mood difficulties when quitting smoking because of nicotine withdrawal. Research suggests that this is one of many factors that makes quitting smoking so difficult.

Our study will help researchers understand how nicotine withdrawal impacts the reward systems of the brain and the effects this has on mood and behavior. The results of this study could help develop new treatments that will make quitting smoking easier for those who want to do so. Individuals who join this study DO NOT need to be planning to quit smoking in the near future.
