Smokeless tobacco use is increasing in the United States, especially among young men, but there are few resources to assist users in quitting their use of moist snuff or chewing tobacco. This article reviews some unique aspects of smokeless tobacco use and provides a systematic four-step clinical plan for providing cessation. The authors provide clear suggestions, measures, and aids for getting the user ready to quit, planning their quit, quitting, and staying quit. The procedures and measures have been validated in randomized clinical trials and provide empirical support for the recommended cessation procedures. Finally, a review of brief cessation interventions in the context of health care is provided.
