MetadataShow full item record
Nicotine addiction is a dangerous health problem that causes illness and death worldwide. In this study, we aimed to determine the factors affecting successful smoking cessation in patients who attended a smoking cessation clinic and received pharmacotherapy with cognitive behavioral intervention. Successful smoking cessation was defined as quitting smoking for six months. Data on sociodemographic and smoking characteristics were collected from 102 patients who attended the clinic between November 2017 and February 2018 and met the inclusion criteria, including moderate to high nicotine dependency. The rate of smoking cessation was found to be 65.7% at the three-month follow-up and 47.1% at the six-month follow-up. Those who quit smoking were more likely to be older than those who did not. Working in a smoking environment was found to have a negative effect on quitting. Quit rates were significantly associated with receiving pharmacological treatment for sufficient time and the number of control interviews (p<0.05). Relapse rates at the one-year follow-up found that 11.8% and 35.3% of the patients, respectively, did not return to smoking. There was no statistically significant difference in the six-month smoking cessation rate and one-year relapse rates between Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) and non-NRT treatments.
