Tobacco cessation counseling should be offered on a regular basis to all patients who smoke cigarettes, pipes or cigars, and to those who use smokeless tobacco. For some patients, nicotine gum may be an appropriate adjunct to smoking cessation. Adolescents and young adults who do not currently use tobacco products should be advised not to start.
