Background and Objective: Smoking Cessation Clinics (SCCs) involve the use of cognitive behavior therapy and effective medications provided by specialists. Our objective was to report socio-demographic data, investigative services provided, and determine the smoking cessation success. Methods: Data from hospitals affiliated with the University of health sciences Lahore, were obtained between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015. Data from DHQ and Allied Hospitals Faisalabad were reviewed via retrospective chart review in the same period. Frequency and average values were determined using statistical software. In the evaluation of related factors, chi-square and student t tests were applied; p ? 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: The mean admission age was 38.72 ± 12.20 years (min 13; max 94). Women tended to be older than men at the time of admission but men started smoking younger than women. Less than the high school educated subjects started smoking at early ages. The smoking cessation rate was 39.3% (n = 219) when treated with medication and behavioral therapy. Conclusion: About 48% smokers stopped smoking after treatment with medications and behaviour therapy. Most of the smokers were between 30-50 years of age. More Smoking Cessation Clinics should be established to allow access to more highly educated patients to smoking cessation resources.
