Abstract

The use of evidence-based smoking cessation aids (SCA) is an important strategy in helping smokers to quit successfully and is highly recommended for smoking cessation.1 However, the use of these aids in the Netherlands is particularly low.2 While many smokers seem to underestimate the benefits of using evidence-based SCA,3 the use of non-evidence-based SCA is quite popular.4 ,5 Smokers do not perceive non-evidence-based SCA to be less helpful than evidence-based SCA.6 ,7 The internet might contribute to this misperception, since internet searches for SCA more often lead to non-professional than professional websites.8 So do smokers know which SCA are evidence-based and which are not? This study sought to find an answer to this question.
