Cigarettes are still a source of health problems in Indonesia. Several non-communicable diseases, which are increasing in number, are mostly caused by smoking behavior. Diseases caused by smoking include prolonged cough, lung disease, pregnancy disorders, atherosclerosis infertility, and several types of cancer. The contribution of smoking to the occurrence of cardiovascular disease is also quite large. The role of the family in supporting the decision to stop smoking is very important. Families can provide the emotional and practical support needed to achieve smoking cessation goals. This study aims to disseminate research results related to the theme of the Role of the Family in Supporting the Decision to Stop Smoking. In addition, it also conducts an analysis of what family roles are needed to support smokers to quit.
