RESULTS: Less women than men asked for information about smoking cessation methods using Quitline (28% of the callers) and information groups (48% of participants), women preferring the website forum (53% of posts). Less women than men received free-of-charge non-nicotinic medication: 41% (national level), 47% (Bucharest) and 43.5% of the patients (Iasi) were women. Of the women receiving treatment, 52% are 25-44 yo. The abstinence rate at the end of treatment for women is 61% versus 56% for men (national level), and the most successfull are the youngest women (women: 63% for 25-44 yo versus 58% for >45yo; men: 55% versus 59%). There are no differences between Bucharest, Iasi and national trend, except the percentage of “lost” patients (21% in Bucharest versus 14% at national level). The main reason for quitting is the cost of smoking (for young women), respectively the health effects (for women>45yo).
