In the relevant departments of health institutions, treatment methods are applied to assist smoking cessation. For smoking cessation, nicotine replacement therapy and drugs containing bupropion or varenicline active ingredients are used. These treatment methods reduce the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. Instead of waiting for people who have decided to quit smoking but are not ready yet, drug treatment can be started. In particular, the use of varenicline is more preferred than nicotine replacement therapy in these people. Behavioral therapy can be applied by psychologists or psychiatrists apart from drug therapy. However, the combination of both behavioral therapy and drug therapy is more effective on smoking cessation.
