The three main cigarette cessation methods used in the US include nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), non-nicotine pharmacotherapies (varenicline and bupropion) and behavioral therapies. Smokeless tobacco specific recommendations are not currently available for health care providers in the US. This article examines whether the listed cigarette cessation methods are equally effective in reaching long-term abstinence rates when used by ST users, for which long-term abstinence is defined as zero ST consumption for 6 months or more.
