Objectives: To use the theory of planned behavior to identify predictors of intentions to use cessation aids when quitting smoking. Methods: African American smokers completed a survey to assess intentions, attitudes, and normative and control beliefs regarding the use of smoking cessation aids. Results: Participants held mildly positive attitudes regarding the use of cessation aids. Beliefs related to the utility of aids, support of referents, and accessibility of a doctor were most strongly associated with intention to use cessation aids. Conclusions: African American smokers may be amenable to the use of cessation aids, and specific beliefs may be targets for intervention.
