Background: The majority of cannabis smokers who quit do so without formal treatment, suggesting that
motivations to quit are an important part of cessation process. However, little is known about how motivations
relate to successful quitting.
Method: A convenience sample of 385 non-treatment-seeking adult cannabis smokers (58% male, age 16–
64 years at start of quit attempt) who made a “serious” (self-defined) quit attempt without formal treatment
while not in a controlled environment were administered the 176-item Marijuana Quit Questionnaire (MJQQ)
to assess their motivations to quit and outcome of the quit attempt. Exploratory factor analysis was performed
to identify significant motivational factors. Subgroup comparisons used t-tests and ANOVA. Cox proportional
hazard regression and the General Linear Model were performed to evaluate the influence of motivational factors,
gender, and age on relapse status at time of interview and risk of relapse over time, with time between
quit attempt and interview as a covariate.
