People with schizophrenia continue to smoke at higher rates than the general population. Yet, care providers do not routinely aggressively treat this addiction, despite an extensive literature supporting that people with schizophrenia can tolerate cessation attempts. The rationale for not treating smoking addiction will be addressed, and then the intervention literature reviewed. Some clinical issues and areas which need for further study will be discussed.
