Augmented Reality as an Adjunct for Smoking Cessation

Study Description

Utilizing Augmented Reality as an Adjunct for Smoking Cessation

The purpose of the study is to develop an preliminary test a tobacco smoking-related augmented reality (AR) paradigm for eventual development as an adjunctive tobacco cessation intervention.

Behavioral - Augmented Reality 1

Participants will use an Augmented Reality (AR) application on smart phones. The AR application will create simulated examples of AR stimuli (cigarettes, lighters, ashtrays) and non-smoking related stimuli (pens, notebook, eraser).

Behavioral - Augmented Reality 2

Participants will use an Augmented Reality (AR) application on smart phones. The AR application will create simulated examples of smoking related AR stimuli (cigarettes, lighters, ashtrays) as well as non-smoking images (pens, notebook, etc.). They will also be presented with real smoking (e.g., ashtray) and non-smoking (e.g., pencil) items. Their urge to smoke rating following each presentation will be compared for AR images vs. vivo items, and smoking-related vs. non-smoking related.

Behavioral - Augmented Reality 3

Participants will use an Augmented Reality )AR) application on smart phones in locations and situations where they typically smoke. the application will create simulated examples of AR stimuli (cigarettes, lighters, ashtrays). Participants will have a goal of using application at least 5 times per day for 7 days. Usage and rating data will be collected in real-time.

Behavioral - Augmented Reality 4

Participants will use an Augmented Reality (AR) application on smart phones. The AR application will create simulated examples of AR stimuli (cigarettes, lighters, ashtrays) as well as non-smoking images (pens, notebook, etc.) Their urge to smoke rating following each presentation will be compared from baseline urge to smoke. The post-test urge to smoke will be compared between control group and extinction group.
