dc.description.abstractThe current smoking cessation aids available to daily smokers were evaluated for their effectiveness. The effectiveness of a smoking cessation tool or program was based on how significantly the method helped a daily smoker reduce or quit smoking with a low rate of recidivism. After analyzing current literature on the topic of smoking cessation, the methods combining a pharmacological aid with behavioral intervention methods are believed to be the most effective by professionals for sustained smoking abstinence. A new method in aiding smoking reduction and cessation is introduced and is hypothesized to be more effective at long term reduction and/or cessation compared to currently available behavioral and pharmacological treatments. This method is shown to focus on eliminating the habit of smoking, which is suggested to be the main factor contributing to long-term addiction. This method is compared for efficacy to currently marketed cessation aids and popular programs.en_US
