Summary: This study is a secondary data analysis of a randomized controlled trial of a smoking cessation intervention conducted with Korean Americans. The trial was conducted between 2010 and 2013, with 109 Korean immigrants residing in northeastern regions of the U.S. Participants were randomized to either the treatment group or the control group. The treatment group received eight weekly 40-minute counseling sessions of a culturally tailored smoking cessation intervention and nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). In contrast, the control group received eight weekly 10-minute counseling sessions of a standard smoking cessation intervention and NRT. Primary findings of the randomized controlled trial have been reported elsewhere. In this report,authors report findings based on the analysis of 88 participants who completed at least two of four follow-up assessments after the smoking cessation intervention.

Findings: Baseline demographics and smoking-related variables were compared between men and women. Women were less likely than men to be married and to have a past-year quit attempt but were more likely to have medical insurance and to live with a family member who was also a smoker. Women had their smoking onset at an older age and smoked fewer cigarettes per day than men. However, there was no gender difference in nicotine dependence scores and CO readings.
