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.
