ABSTRACT
Presents general guidance on delivering smoking cessation interventions by investigating issues relevant to special groups of smokers. 80 percent of pregnant women polled acknowledge the need to stop during pregnancy and may be more receptive to help; How women's perception of the dangers vary during stages of pregnancy and how to tailor cessation programs to match; Adolescents who ideally should be prevented from starting to smoke; Admission that no great plans exists for this yet; Lack of proof on which cessation interventions work on young people; People with low income who have not changed their smoking patterns as much as other groups; Belief that disadvantaged smokers tend to be more seriously addicted and may be candidates for pharmacotherapy; Large variance of smoking rates between ethnic minority groups; Little research on how interventions work within these groups.
