(BMJ) In response to Spence,1 I have published critiques of the causes and consequences of smoking cessation becoming over-medicalised and the concomitant neglect of serious study of how most ex-smokers stopby going cold turkey or other self help strategies that do not entail professional help or pharmacotherapy.2
The daily smoking rate is 15.1% in Australia, 14.2% in New South Wales3a fall from 16.7% in 2007 and 24.3% in 1991. This has been driven by Australia's decades long successful advocacy efforts for top down health legislation (advertising bans, smoke-free public places, graphic warnings on packets, bans on retail displays); nearly 15 years of mass reach, in your face public awareness campaigning; significant tax increases; and constant efforts to denormalise smoking. Although nicotine replacement treatment and two prescribed cessation drugs are subsidised, neither their sales nor advertising for nicotine replacement has had any detectable impact on smoking prevalence.4 Although this lack of effect may have been due to power limitations, it hardly inspires confidence that assisted cessation makes a major contribution to reducing smoking in populations.
Labour intensive smoking cessation clinics are uncommon in Australia because few smokers are or have been interested in attending them5indeed, only 3% of smokers call the Quitline in a year.6 Such clinics will never be a mass reach strategy capable of reducing smoking prevalence in the population. The British tobacco control community's historic preoccupation with what are essentially clinical approaches to smoking cessation may be retarding faster progress in reducing national smoking rates.
