Smoking is a global health risk factor despite the efforts to control and the existance of tobacco cessation program. The objective of this study was to measure the proportion of people who failed to quit smoking at the end of six months after attending the smoking cessation clinic and to identify the factors associated with failure to quit. We used an analytical cross-sectional design which was conducted at Taif city, Saudi Arabia between January 2019 and March 2020. The attendees of smoking cessation clinic were invited to participate in the study. We used a questionnaire as the data collection too. The statistical package for the social sciences (IBM Corp. Released 2020. IBM SPSS Statistics for Windows, Version 27.0. Armonk, NY: IBM Corp ) was used to analyze the data. The total responses was 393, out of them  201 (51.1%) failed to quit smoking after six months. Age, marital status, income, and occupation were significantly associated with the outcome variable (quit or not). Even before attending the clinic (62.3%) have indicated previous failed attempts. Among the different types of smoking, hookah showed a significant association with failure, while nicotine dependence did not showed any significance. Failure to quit was associated with advanced age, smoking hookah, while those who indicated the price of tobacco products as a reason to quit were more prone to fail in quitting smoking. In conclusion, smoking cessation can be influenced by a sociodemographic factors, willingness and family support. Smoking hookah is associated with higher rates of failure to quit smoking.

Background: More than 300 million smokers make China the largest cigarette consumer globally, which is a huge economic burden. Smoking cessation (SC) clinics can offer counseling and follow-up services. The operational experience of SC clinics in China needs to be summarized and improved based on research evidence.Purpose: The objectives of this study were to describe quit rates among attendees of SC clinics in Hunan and assess predictors of successful SC.Methods: The participants in this study were smokers who visited the SC clinic of Hunan Cancer Hospital from February 1, 2015 to September 30, 2018. Individuals who received individual counseling and assessment from the SC clinic staff and were willing to quit smoking were eligible for inclusion. Those with critical illness or cancer were excluded. Application of smoking cessation clinic registration form (unified by Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention) was used to assess participants at the consultation. Follow-ups and counseling were performed over telephone at 1 week, 1 month, and 3 months after the initial cessation consultation or in times of need. Successful SC was checked for at 3 months after the start of SC.Results: A total of 328 smokers (mean age 45.67 ± 12.38 years) had participated. The abstinence rate at 3 months was 28.4%. Binary regression analysis revealed significant independent predictors to be the total numbers of SC follow up sessions, previous SC attempts, and participants' decision on when to quit smoking (The relative to quit immediately group, quit within 30 days, quit after 30 days, and undecided quit were less likely to succeed in quitting. while quit within seven days had no statistical significance.Conclusion: SC clinics can achieve a desirably high quit rate. Participant's previous attempts at quitting, three or more follow-ups, and the decision to quit immediately or within seven days were factors helpful in predicting the success of SC.

Abstract Introduction Varenicline and combination nicotine replacement treatment (cNRT) have been recommended as the most effective pharmacotherapies, with equal abstinence rate for smoking cessation in a network meta-analysis of randomized trials, but data from real-world long-term follow-up studies are rare. This study aimed to compare the 12-month sustained abstinence rates of smokers using varenicline versus cNRT in their quit attempt. Methods A total of 3,569 smokers were recruited via the Department of Family Medicine outpatient department at Kaohsiung Veteran General Hospital between June 2013 and March 2019. Participants received counseling from a physician and chose either varenicline (N=2,870) or cNRT (N=699) for smoking cessation. Both varenicline and cNRT users could receive a free 8-week supply and 8 clinic visits over 90 days. Participants were followed-up by telephone at 12, 24, and 52 weeks from first visit. The primary outcome measure of the study was self-reported sustained abstinence up to 52 weeks. Results Varenicline users had a significantly higher sustained abstinence rate weeks 12-52, adjusted for baseline variables (15.2% vs. 10.3%, p=0.001; aOR= 1.47, 95%CI: 1.05–2.05). Other significant predictors of 52 weeks sustained abstinence were being male, having a higher income, attending more clinical visits and have lower nicotine dependence. Conclusion Varenicline appears to have higher sustained abstinence rates to 52 weeks compared with cNRT, in a smoking cessation clinic where smokers can choose their medication option.
