  • Why take the test?

    The test consists of a standard set of questions which assesses how dependent you are on your cigarettes and the intensity of your nicotine dependence. The higher your score, the more likely you are to have nicotine withdrawal symptoms when you stop smoking, and the stronger they are likely to be. Understanding your nicotine dependence and working out how best to cope with those withdrawal symptoms when quitting smoking cigarettes, is an essential part of the GoSmokeFree smoking cessation plan.
  • What will I do with the results?

    Once you have answered the five easy questions your test results are automatically calculated and will display your level of nicotine addiction and the implications of that level of dependence. An evidence based recommendation related to your score is given.
