Smoking/Tobacco Cessation Counselling

Although the adult smoking rate in the U.S. has declined to about 17%, currently more than 40 million Americans ages 18 and older smoke. An estimated 88% of adults who were daily smokers at some point in their lives said they started smoking by age 18. More than 20 million Americans have died due to smoking since the first Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health was issued in 1964. While progress has been made, cigarette smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke still result in more than 480,000 deaths annually in the U.S. Legislation, education and prevention programs continue to be instrumental in lowering these rates.

Quitting Smoking

Quitting smoking greatly reduces the risk of developing smoking-related diseases. It is never too late to quit, however, doing so is challenging because tobacco use is an addiction. The rapid delivery of nicotine from the lungs to the brain in just 10 seconds is one of the reasons why cigarettes are so addictive. Like other drugs, nicotine causes cells in the brain to release dopamine, resulting in increased alertness and contentment. After a period of time, mechanisms in the brain are altered to expect regular bursts of extra dopamine. When a smoker tries to quit, he or she experiences strong cravings similar to what an alcoholic or illicit drug user experiences. Due to the highly addictive nature of nicotine, many people need professional smoking cessation counseling and treatment.

Smoking Cessation Options

Effective cessation treatments include individual, group and telephone counseling and seven FDA-approved medications. Five are nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) options and two are prescription drugs. NRT patches, gum and lozenges are available without a prescription. Even brief cessation advice and counseling by healthcare providers has proven efficacy, however, the effectiveness of cessation counseling increases with longer duration and the number of sessions. About 70% of smokers want to quit smoking and about half of those smokers try to quit each year, however, less than 10% succeed. This is due in part because less than one-third of smokers who try to quit use proven cessation treatment methods. FDA-approved medications and nicotine patches, gum or lozenges in combination with coaching support, can double or triple the likelihood of success.
