- The primary measure of results will be the differences in smoking cessation rates between intervention and control groups [ Time Frame: 12 months after been conducted the intervention ]In all patients who report smoking withdrawal, smoking cessation will be confirmed by air carbon monoxide concentration.
- Reduce the number of cigarettes among those who continue smoking [ Time Frame: 12 months after been conducted the intervention ]One secondary outcome will be to reduce the number of cigarettes. In all patients who continue smoking will be recorded the number of cigarettes smoked per day currently
