About this research study:
Researchers hope to gain a better scientific understanding of nicotine addiction in daily smokers who have a difficult time quitting.
Although the rates of smoking in the US have substantially declined, approximately 20% of smokers have been unable to quit with standard therapies.

We are interested in how brain patterns are linked to daily cigarette use and how behavior, brain chemistry, and brain activity may be altered when smoking.
