BECERRA, Nelci  and  GARCIA-PADILLA, Pilar. Nicotinic Replacement Therapy Associated with Gradual Reduction as a Strategy of Smoking Cessation. Case report. Univ. Med. [online]. 2018, vol.59, n.1, pp.69-74. ISSN 0041-9095.

The usual approach to the treatment of smoking to set a date to stop smoking abruptly has been refuted by many patients who show interest in reducing their consumption gradually. The progressive reduction using nicotine replacement therapy prior to cessation would treat a greater number of smokers. It’s the case of a patient with high nicotine dependence, interested in quitting but not abruptly.

Keywords : smoking; smoking cessation; harm reduction.
