Tobacco Cessation Change Package
On This Page:

Tobacco dependence is a chronic, relapsing condition that often requires repeated intervention and long-term support.  Future smoking-related illnesses, deaths, and costs can be prevented by helping individuals who use tobacco to quit.  Evidence-based treatments, including counseling and Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medications, are available but are under utilized.

Clinicians play a critical role in delivering cessation support; at least 70% of persons who smoke see a physician each year.  Patients expect physicians to address tobacco use, and consistent interventions from clinicians improve patient outcomes.  Even brief advice to quit from a clinician increases quit rates, and more intensive clinical interventions have progressively greater impact.
