Study Summary

This trial is testing whether an electronic visit (e-visit) for smoking cessation is effective. Participants will be assigned at random to either receive the e-visit or not. The e-visit will be in the form of an online questionnaire about smoking history, motivation to quit, and preferences for quitting medications. If participants are randomized to the e-visit group, they may receive a prescription for a smoking cessation medication, but they are not required to take it. The study will last 24 weeks and consist of four time points where participants will answer questionnaires and provide breath samples.
