Abstract

This report concerns the case of a female client with a probable borderline personality disorder who requested psychological treatment for the cessation of smoking. After six sessions, this client gave up smoking and remained abstinent at follow-up after 1, 3, 6, and 12 months. The presence of a probable borderline personality disorder did not interfere in the cessation of tobacco use or in the maintenance of abstinence.
