Among the volunteers who enrolled to participate in the study, 15 participants were selected as our subject group in terms of their scores in Fagerstrom Test for Nicotine Dependence (middle or upper level of dependency). The participants of this study attended 9 weeks of treatment including a preliminary session in the first week following 8 EMDR sessions (once a week) and 4 group sessions (once every two weeks). The 5 follow up sessions (15-day, a month, 3 month. 6 month. 1 year foilow-up) are included in the study to evaluate the efficacy of the model and the relapse rate of the subjects. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) DeTUR Protocol (Popky, 1993) and a support group format is used as treatment methods. Hughes-Watsukami Withdrawal Questionnaire, STAI, Traumatic Life Events Questionnaire (TLEQ) and Fagerstrom Test for Nicotine Dependence is the instruments of this study.
