Conference paper


It is well known that smoking and earning capacity are at least indirectly interrelated. In order to find out whether smoking cessation treatment methods can effectively change attitudes towards smoking and which method is most effective, the Association of German Pension Insurance Agencies (VDR) conducted a model trial in cooperation with the Gemeinnütziges Institut für Therapieforschung, Munich (Prof. Dr. J. C. Brengelmann), the Institut für Sozialmedizin, Prävention und Rehabilitation, Tutzing (Prof. Dr. U. Stocksmeier) and Dr. O. Hammer, Bad Nauheim, in the years 1977–1982.
