Smoking Therapy (colloquially quitting smoking) is the process of discontinuing tobacco smoking. Tobacco contains nicotine, which is addictive,making the process of quitting often very prolonged and difficult.
About Smoke Therapy:
Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death worldwide, and quitting smoking significantly reduces the risk of dying from tobacco-related diseases such as heart disease and lung cancer. Seventy percent of smokers would like to quit smoking, and 50 percent report attempting to quit within the past year.
The majority of smokers who try to quit do so without assistance, though only 3 to 6% of quit attempts without assistance are successful. Use of medications and behavioral counseling both increase success rates, and a combination of both medication and behavioral interventions has been shown to be even more effective.
Smokers who are trying to quit are faced with social influences that may persuade them to conform and continue smoking.
Smokers with major depressive disorder may be less successful at quitting smoking than non-depressed smokers.
