This trial offers support and assistance to patients wishing to quit smoking in order to increase the success rate of smoking cessation and all the benefits associated with it. Patients will be monitored by a tobacco specialist and will be able to benefit from one or more therapies complementary to Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT): Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Hypnotherapy.


The study RESPIRE is aiming to identify some interventions to be proposed as part of a smoking cessation programme for smokers with cancer requiring surgical treatment and wishing to stop smoking. We aim to compare different smoking cessation methods in addition to the currently recommended treatments: Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). These procedures are: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) or hypnotherapy in order to improve the success rate of smoking cessation in this specific population.

All patients wishing to be supported to stop smoking will be randomized and will be followed by a tobacco specialist before and after surgery. They will receive NRT for 12 months.

Smoking assessment, exhaled CO measurement, questionnaires will be completed regularly to assess depression, anxiety and quality of life during the 12 months.

Patients randomized in group 2 will receive 1 to 3 MI. Patients randomized in group 3 will receive 1 to 3 MI and 6 CBT sessions by a psychotherapist.

Patients randomized in group 4 will receive 1 to 3 MI and at least 3 sessions oh hypnotherapy.
