One in two long-term smokers will die of an illness resulting from their cigarette use. People with low socioeconomic status (SES) smoke more and make less successful attempts to quit that their high SES peers, which also means this group shoulders a larger burden of smoking-related illness. That is why it is important that smokers with low SES use evidence-based strategies to enhance their chance of quitting smoking successfully. Fiona Benson studies the use of behavioural therapy, with or without pharmacotherapy, to help people stop smoking in disadvantaged areas in the Netherlands.
