The purpose of this study was to examine smoking behavior and the desire to quit among low-income women. Two hundred and eight women caregivers were surveyed about their smoking status, exposure to environmental tobacco smoke in the home, and desire to quit smoking. Most of the smokers (74%) wanted to quit smoking. With a logistic regression model, the number of years smoked was the only significant predictor variable for the dependent variable of thoughts about quitting when age, years of smoking, number of children, marital status, number of smokers in the home, cigarettes smoked per day, and money spent per week on cigarettes were entered as independent variables. The fewer years smoked the more likely the women wanted to quit.
