Summary Given the detrimental effects of smoking dependence on people's health and given the modest effects of current treatments on smoking cessation, my co-authors and I were curious to explore the effectiveness of alternative therapies, such as mindfulness, in the treatment of smoking. Specifically, we conducted a systematic review and a meta-analysis of the efficacy of mindfulness training in smoking cessation compared with standard behavioral treatments.
