Relapse Prevention

Description: 
Working to prevent relapse.

Congratulate ex-tobacco users on any success and encourage them to remain abstinent at every clinic visit after they quit. Tobacco dependence is a chronic, progressive, relapsing disease and requires long-term effort as does hypertension, diabetes, or other chronic diseases and conditions. Encourage the discussion of successes and problems patients have had by using open-ended questions (e.g., "How has quitting tobacco use helped you?")
