Topic: "The Great American Smokeout and 5 Simple Things You Can Do"

Join us on November 19, 2013 at 1 pm for another "Tobacco Tuesday Conference Call," just in time for the Great American Smokeout on November 21. People can quit, and YOU can help! Here are a few things we will discuss on the call:

Did you know? ... Over 44 percent of all cigarettes sold in the US are consumed by people with psychiatric conditions and about 75 percent of people with behavioral health conditions smoke (compared to about 20 percent of the general population).

Addressing tobacco use simultaneously with alcohol or other drug treatment can actually increase the likelihood of abstinence by up to 25 percent, and using pharmacological interventions (e.g. nicotine patch) can double the chance of success in quitting. Since smoking can interfere with the metabolism of many medications, this is a vitally important intervention.

5 Simple Things to Do Today

Here are 5 simple things you can do today to help people who use tobacco work toward quitting:

  1. Ask everyone you see if they use tobacco
  2. Assess each person's readiness to quit
  3. Use each person's readiness to quit to help him/her develop a list of things to do to delay or skip just one cigarette a day
  4. Post our Center's "Sending Tobacco Use Up In Smoke” poster in your office, lobby, and hallways. Order printed copies and/or download a free PDF:
  5. Hold an information forum on the pros and cons of tobacco use

Long-Term Approach

If you’re interested in helping long-term, consider integrating tobacco into your existing services.

  • Plan for tobacco interventions as you develop or expand your Integrated Primary and Behavioral Health Care services.
  • Update your skills on using a motivational, stage-based approach to behavior change.
