People have smoked cigarettes for a very long time, which leads to addiction, many types of cancer, and cardiovascular disease. These negative side affects cause many smokers to attempt to quit. Smoking cessation programs are helpful because patients can talk through the factors that caused them to start smoking in the first place, which includes stress due to their past, home situations, etc. The success rate of patients who enroll themselves varies per program. The goal of this study was to evaluate the success of a pharmacist-managed smoking cessation program at a federally qualified health center. Data was collected via phone-call surveys. If the participant did not complete the telephone survey, their smoking status upon discontinuation of the smoking cessation program was obtained through the electronic health record. Nineteen patients completed the survey, and 17 of them reported that the program was helpful in some way. Surveyed patients identified three areas of the program that they found helpful in their quit attempt: Iearning, counseling, and medication. 20.7 percent of the 58 participants of the program successfully quit smoking. ln conclusion, the program did help some patients quit smoking or progress towards a tobacco-free life. Although no smoking cessation program has a 100 percent success rate, they are important because they do help the people who are willing to put in the time and effort to utilize the program and stop their addiction.
