Kicking the habit for good: Cognitive behavioral therapy for smoking cessation by Dr. Harte

 

CBT is an evidenced-based psychological treatment that focuses on identifying and changing thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that trigger, worsen, and/or maintain a range of problems. Because changing your smoking-related behaviors – and restructuring your thoughts related to smoking urges – is essential to quitting, CBT can effectively be applied to smoking cessation.
