Research shows that people with PTSD are more likely to smoke and have trouble quitting than people without PTSD. This study is part of a program aimed at finding out how best to help smokers quit who also have PTSD. One option is to give patients standard smoking cessation treatment including nicotine replacement and cognitive behavioral therapy. Another option is to give patients the standard smoking cessation treatment in addition to treatment for their PTSD symptoms (called prolonged exposure). However, it is not known which method works better.
