Objective: To determine home smoking restrictions (HSR) predictors among African American light smokers (smoke <10 cigarettes per day).

Methods: Data were obtained from a clinical trial testing the efficacy of nicotine gum and counseling among 755 African American light smokers.

Results: Forty percent reported adopting HSR at week 26. Implementing HSR increased with higher baseline confidence to quit (P <0.0001) and female gender (P = 0.019) and decreased with older age (P = 0.016) and reduced confidence to quit between baseline and week 26 (P <0.0001).

Conclusions: Confidence to quit, gender, and age are important factors to incorporate into interventions enhancing the adoption of HSR.
