Abstract

Smoking cessation activities and support for its implementation should be integrated into the health care system. The outcome of smoking cessation has improved with the availability of proper behavior approaches and medications. Incorporating these guidelines into daily clinical practice ensures that health care providers provide the opportunity for patients to quit smoking. The best hope of improved treatment comes from combining existing and new pharmacotherapies with effective behavioral therapy.
