Abstract

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