Should smokers be offered assistance with stopping? (Editorial)

West R, McNeill A, Britton J, Bauld L, Raw M, Hajek P, Arnott D, Jarvis M & Stapleton J (2010) Should smokers be offered assistance with stopping? (Editorial), Addiction, 105 (11), pp. 1867-1869.

Many governments are actively considering whether and how to provide their population with assistance with smoking cessation. Arguments have been raised against this, but these are often based on fallacies (e.g. most smokers stop without help so assistance is unnecessary). This editorial counters these fallacies so that a constructive debate can be had about the role of cessation assistance in the tobacco control strategies for a given population.
