Description: 
The burden of suffering due to tobacco use is staggering, and irreconcilable with the relative social and medical complacency with which it is treated. Smoking is the leading cause of preventable premature death in our society, claiming more lives around the world each year than war: it may be the most important public health issue of our time., Since most smokers see a physician each year, and most smokers report a desire to quit, primary care clinicians are well positioned to assist smokers in their cessation efforts. It is essential to provide effective cessation intervention for all smokers at each visit. (From their website)
