Positive psychology interventions (PPI) to increase positive emotions, positive behaviors, and positive cognitions have been demonstrated to decrease depression and enhance well-being. First attempt at using PPI for smoking cessation has been recently implemented, and preliminary results on the feasibility and acceptability of PPI for have been reported. The present study examined the possibility of using PPI with task, such as using strengths, writing blessings, active responding and savoring to facilitate smoking cessation. Moreover, new methods of using 24 strengths for smoking cessation have been proposed. Future studies are needed to evaluate the efficacy of PPI for smoking cessation; to stop smoking at the beginning, to prevent relapses during follow-up, and for maintaining a life without smoking.
