About Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Smoking Cessation by Kenneth A. Perkins
Helping smokers to quit smoking may be the most important clinical accomplishment by professionals who deal with health or behavior change. No other behavior problem faced by such professionals has nearly as great an impact on morbidity and mortality. Every year, tobacco smoking kills 5 million people worldwide (Ezzati & Lopez, 2003), or about one person every 6 seconds.
Smoking has decreased in the United States in recent decades with changes in societal attitudes and better treatments, and smokers are increasingly interested in quitting. Nevertheless, there are still nearly 50 million Americans who smoke, along with 1 billion others worldwide.
One implication of the gradual decline in smoking prevalence in the United States is that most of those able to quit without assistance have already done so, whereas continuing smokers tend to be those who cannot easily quit without help. Today’s smokers are more likely to be highly dependent on nicotine or to represent specific subpopulations with comorbid conditions or other complicating factors that impede successful quitting (Irvin & Brandon, 2000).
These factors include concerns about gaining weight due to quitting smoking, mental illness (such as depression), or a substance abuse problem (such as alcoholism). Still, other sub-groups of smokers seem to have more difficulty quitting than do others. Therefore, in the coming years, the remaining smokers will need to rely more and more on professional counseling in order to quit smoking.
In this preface, we hope to convince all health care providers that they can and should help smokers to quit. The objective of this book is to comprehensively describe how to provide recommended counseling for smokers trying to quit smoking. We also emphasize techniques to address individual differences in the cessation-related problems that impede a smoker’s ability to quit.
