The research questions investigates the effects of smoking, the measures that are recommendable in prevention of smoking and the best treatment models that can tale effect in smoking. The article considers the effects, prevention, and treatment of smoking. It describes the negative effects of smoking with shallow descriptions. It goes on to describe the findings of the prevention measures and finally gives a treatment recommendation from the conclusions of the literature reviewed. No statistics have been embraced in the study, and there are no statistical presentations such as graphs, thus the research looks into qualitative measures of smoking only (Informed health organization, 2013). The informed health organization (2013), on the overview of the research, realized that there are a couple of good reasons behind quitting smoking, but realized that people still have difficulties quitting smoking. They mention good health that is achieved by not smoking as the first reason and the expense that the smokers undergo while buying cigarettes as the main benefits of quitting smoking. Three effects of smoking are mentioned, with the first being the effect of slower healing wounds after surgery. Secondly, smoking done by pregnant mothers can harm the unborn child and cause miscarriage due to nicotine poisoning, and premature or underweight births. Third, in the long run, the smoker is exposed to risks of lung, mouth, and throat cancers, chronic coughs and other respiratory complications (Informed health organization, 2013). 2 SUMMARY OF THE SELECTED ARTICLES Benefits of Incentives for Breastfeeding and Smoking cessation in pregnancy The hypothesis states that there are negative effects to unborn children caused by smoking. The aim of the research is to evaluate the effects of smoking cessation in pregnant women and develop a workable design that can assist pregnant women quit smoking. The qualitative study spotlighted 82 pregnant women, 53 service providers, 1144 members of the general public and 320 other women with a smoking history. Evidence syntheses design was embraced, where data was collected, and various calculated behaviours pooled in the data tables to give a conclusive argument. The different population played different roles, answering interviews and being observed where they allowed to be placed under observation. The smoking pregnant women were the key components, but the non-smoking pregnant and the smoking non-pregnant were used as a control. The rest of the participants took other roles other than being investigated, interrogated or observed (Morgan et al, 2015). The findings proved that contingent vouchers on biochemically smoking cessation showed effectiveness with a relative risk of 2.58. It was tested on 344 participants in four different studies. The universal incentives were provided and 70% of low income breastfeeding and pregnant mother accepted them. At the short term, in pregnant and breastfeeding mothers 76% of the women showed attitude, emotional and socializing issues during the smoking cessation process, which was suggested to have been caused by the depravation of dependence by all care givers. As the study continued, most of the women learned to cooperate and take the price positively, with only 24% of failed attempts affecting the research. The data collected provided a conclusive argument that tailored components in collaboration with incentives show promise to a certain limit. A recommendation of a collaborative service user is a vital cessation element in smoking pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers (Morgan et al, 2015). 3 SUMMARY OF THE SELECTED ARTICLES References Morgan, H., Hoddinott, P., Thomson, G., Crossland, N., Farrar, S., Yi, D., ... & Rothnie, K.
