Smoking cessation treatment, analysis of smoking cessation rate, and the reason of lower smoking cessation rate in women compared with that in men



Smoking cessation treatment, analysis of smoking cessation rate, and the reason of lower smoking cessation rate in women compared with that in men



Nihon Kokyuki Gakkai Zasshi 45(9): 673-678



Smoking cessation treatment started in July of 2005. The number of patients for smoking cessation surged, after health insurance became applicable for the treatment in April 2006. However, after increases for 2 months, the number of patients decreased. The patients were mainly treated with nicotine patches following "the standard manual for the therapy of smoking cessation". I assessed 143 patients who visited for "health insurance covered smoking cessation treatment" from April 2006 to January 18 2007. The smoking cessation rate 1 week to 2 months after the end of the treatment was 61.2% ; 52.6% on the assumption that undetermined patients were all smokers. Subgroup analysis revealed that the factors for higher smoking cessation rate were (1) men, (2) a history of less than 20 cigarettes daily, (3) lower score of Tobacco Dependence Screener, (4) no other smokers in the household. The reason why the smoking cessation rate of women was lower than that of men was considered to be mainly because there are higher rate of other smokers in the households of women.
