Abstract

Tobacco dependence is a chronic, relapsing disease causing an enormous burden of deaths. The aim of the study was a one year evaluation of the efficacy of bupropion SR supported by an educational program in the treatment of nicotine dependence and analysis of the reasons of relapses. 54 smokers were enrolled. The 12-month continuous abstinence rate was 28,3%. The most common cause of relapses in the treatment period was craving for cigarettes, in the post-treatment period stress.
