Therapy can help address and treat the causes of a smoking habit. If stress creates the urge to smoke, therapy that encourages the exploration of coping methods can reduce the desire to smoke in challenging and overwhelming situations. If smoking is a coping method to deal with the symptoms of a mental health condition such as depression or anxiety, alternative coping methods may be developed through therapy, and treatment can also focus on the underlying cause of the mental health issue. If symptoms of depression, anxiety, or another condition recede, so might the desire to smoke. An awareness of triggers for smoking can be gained in therapy and alternative behaviors can be explored, both of which may help break the habit of smoking.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can also be helpful to smoking cessation. In CBT, methods to reframe negative or self-defeating thoughts can be explored, which may make it easier to cope with nicotine cravings and any unpleasant emotions or feelings associated with quitting, such as symptoms of withdrawal. CBT treatments may increase the likelihood that an attempt to quit is successful. Residential treatment has also demonstrated effectiveness for helping people successfully quit smoking, perhaps due in part to the fact that the treatment involves being removed from one's daily routine and stressors that might dictate a person's smoking habits.
