Abstract

Objectives: To examine the association of health care access/use, trust of physician advice, and depressive symptoms with the ability to sustain smoking cessation. Methods: Data from a nationally representative sample were used to compare current smokers (n=1246), sustained quitters (n=1502), and never smokers (n=3277). Results: Sustained quitters reported fewer depressive symptoms (OR=0.92) and were more likely to have health insurance (OR=1.75) and a usual source of care (OR=1.40) that they had seen within the last year (OR=2.16) and that they were more likely to trust (OR=1.40). Conclusions: Identification of these factors may inform providers' efforts to target and assist in smoking cessation.
