Cigarette smoking continues to cause substantial death and disability, but more than 1 in 5 adults smoke despite the desire among most smokers to stop and the availability of effective treatments. A systematic process to identify all smokers is crucial. Because tobacco dependence is characterized by relapses and remissions, clinicians should be ready to engage smokers and reengage relapsed smokers with options for new medication strategies and additional counseling resources.
