To the Editor: An estimated 6.9 million people in
the United States use smokeless tobacco, such as chewing tobacco or
snuff. The health risks associated with smokeless tobacco use include
increased rates of oropharyngeal cancer and increased subsequent
cigarette smoking.1 Despite the widespread use of smokeless
tobacco, relatively few data have appeared in the literature regarding
treatment of addiction to it.2,3 We describe a case of
successful treatment of smokeless tobacco use with an approach that
combined pharmacotherapy and behavior modification.
