The relative effect of NRT does not depend on the amount of face-to-face behavioural support.



Providing suitable behavioural support in addition to NRT will boost absolute quit rates, however, the effect of NRT does not appear to be dependent on the amount of support provided. Smokers purchasing NRT over the counter should be encouraged to follow product recommendations and access behavioural support where possible.
