Need to provide a realistic, sufficiently detailed and evidence based action plan that a patient could feasibly implement for smoking cessation. I am not too sure how to approach this. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I hope this helps.

One aspect of an action plan that a patient could feasibly implement for smoking cessation, is for the patient to start an exercise and wellness program. The patient can start a program in which they can implement strength training and cardiovascular respiratory training into their daily routine. This will not only serve to improve the health and well-being of the individual, but this will serve to replace the activity of smoking whenever the individual feels the urge. In addition, due to the fact that exercise is a very good way to relieve stress, as well as to release endorphin's in the brain that help to elevate and boost an individual's mood, exercise would be a very good addition to an action plan for a patient to stop smoking.

Another good component ...
