The line between using and quitting tobacco can be so narrow. Many barriers prevent people from conquering their addictions. They include anything from a high-stress environment and a simple lack of support.
Understanding and addressing tobacco cessation barriers is vital for any effective intervention, but with so many variables, it’s hard to keep track. We wanted to find a simple way to remind staff and volunteers about common barriers and the best ways to respond, so we created these Addressing Tobacco Cessation Barriers flashcards. We made these printable cards free for your team.
The cards include tips on how to address tobacco cessation barriers including:
- Social factors
- Lack of support
- Mental health
- Fear of failure
- Competing priorities
Let others know that these cards are available!
