Smoking cessation treatment: any progress?

Author information

Department of Psychology, University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15260.


This article argues that, although smoking rates are declining and quit rates are rising, research on behavioral approaches to smoking cessation is stagnant. Despite an increase in publications on smoking cessation, few innovative approaches have been introduced in the past decade. Furthermore, average treatment outcomes have not improved over this period. Treatment innovations may come from research that aims at fundamental new insights regarding smoking behavior and smoking behavior change rather than from incremental improvements of current approaches.
