All smoking cessation interventions that have a detectable effect in raising quit rates are highly cost-effective in preserving life years.



US and UK analyses show that intervening to help smokers quit is very cost effective relative to other routinely used primary prevention and screening interventions because quitting can prevent a variety of chronic diseases including cancer, heart disease and pulmonary diseases. Even the most intensive smoking cessation interventions are cost effective in the general population and in special groups including hospitalized smokers and pregnant women.
