Abstract

Aims of the review To review the effectiveness of harm reduction approaches with the intention of quitting (ie ‘cutting down to quit’ or ‘reduction to stop smoking’), with and without assistance. Research questions  How effective are pharmacotherapies in helping people cut down smoking before quitting?  How effective are different combinations of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products in helping people cut down smoking before quitting?  How effective are ‘nicotine-containing products’ in helping people cut down smoking before quitting?  How effective are behavioural support, counselling, advice or self-help (with or without pharmacotherapy) in helping people cut down smoking before quitting?  Is there an optimal period for helping people cut down smoking with the aim of quitting?  Is it more or less effective to draw up a schedule to help someone cut down smoking with the aim of quitting?  Do some tobacco harm-reduction approaches have a differential impact on different groups (for example, people of different ages, gender, socioeconomic status or ethnicity)?  Are there any unintended consequences from adopting a tobacco harm-reduction approach, for example, does it deter people from trying to stop smoking?
