This chapter focuses on the pharmacists's role on promoting smoking cessation. Clinical trials have shown that nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) doubles the success rate of those attempting to quit smoking compared with placebo. The government is working closely with manufacturers of NRT products and community pharmacists and doctors to improve the provision of on the spot advice and NRT. The epidemiology and health risks of smoking, influences on tobacco consumption, and case studies are discussed.

Keywords:   pharmacy practice, pharmacists, smoking cessation, nicotine replacement therapy, NRT
