Potential subjects were recruited during a 12-month period using strategies designed to reach moist snuff users who were either community members or members of a large nonprofit health plan located in Minnesota. The study was open to male users of moist snuff or chewing tobacco who were older than 18, had used moist snuff or chewing tobacco for 6 months, were not using other tobacco products regularly, and were not in treatment for substance abuse. Of the 421 study packets mailed to eligible tobacco users, 221 participants returned baseline surveys and were randomized to the telephone counseling (n=109) or a quitting-manual-only comparison group (n=112). The average age was 35.7 years.
Participants were contacted by mail at baseline, 3 months post-randomization, and 6 months post-randomization to complete a self-report questionnaire. Telephone contact was made with non-responders (approximately 40% of the sample) to encourage completion of the questionnaire. Participants were asked (1) whether they currently used smokeless tobacco (chew or snuff); (2) whether they had used any smokeless tobacco in the last 7 days; and (3) whether during the last 7 days they had "smoked cigarettes regularly", "smoked cigarettes once in a while", or had "not smoked cigarettes at all, not even a puff". Moist snuff users were considered abstinent if they reported they had quit snuff and had not used any in the past 7 days and they had not smoked tobacco in the past 7 days.
- Using an intent-to-treat analysis where those who did not complete the follow-up surveys were considered to be continued users, 25% of those in the manual-only group quit tobacco at 6 months compared to 40.4% in the manual-plus-telephone counseling group (p<.001).
- A significant dose response relationship was found between the number of calls and the likelihood of quitting tobacco at 3 months (p<.015). However, this effect was no longer significant at 6 months.
