Resisting the urge to smoke: Inhibitory control training in cigarette smokers



This study examines the effects of Inhibitory Control Training (ICT) on response inhibition towards smoking-related cues, smoking resistance and cigarette use.

We hypothesised that ICT would improve response inhibition and smoking resistance and reduce cigarette use. Our data suggest that ICT enhances the ability to resist smoking, indicating that training may be a promising adjunct to smoking pharmacotherapy. Further research is required to improve the duration of training effects and to understand the mechanism underlying training.
