Behavioral counseling is provided by specialists for treating tobacco addiction. Four to eight sessions take place. Therapy sessions are considered to be successful for the patients. Cognitive-behavioral therapy helps the patients identify triggers – the people, places, and things that spur behavior and teaches relapse prevention skills along with good coping mechanisms that will help the patients to quit tobacco use.
Motivational interviewing is another method that helps the patients explore and resolve their ambivalence about quitting tobacco intake and motivates them to make healthy changes in their lifestyle. Patients can differentiate between their positive and negative behavior and they try to set some long-term goals for themselves.
Mindfulness is another method that is proven to be successful for addicts. In mindfulness-based therapy, patients learn to increase awareness of and detachment from sensations, cravings, and thoughts that might lead them to relapse. In this therapy, the patients purposely attend to the thoughts that trigger cravings and urges for tobacco and cognitively reframe them as expected and tolerable.
