Abstract


Most tobacco intervention focus on behavioural methods to reduce dependence, the role of social support is unclear. The objective is to evaluate the evidence of social support as well as its efficacy with respect to tobacco cessation. It explores to understand the role of social support for an individual to make a behaviour change. Social support is one resource in the environment, if used effectively can be extremely beneficial for someone wanting to quit tobacco. A comprehensive literature search on the contribution of social support with respect to tobacco cessation was conducted to give a practical review for practitioners in the field. Overall, it was seen that all the studies strengthened the evidence for the role of social support in tobacco cessation. Although, more research is required in this field to comprehend the long haul advantages of social support and additionally its effects on psychological well-being as well as relapse prevention.
