Physicians self-report high adherence rates for Ask and Advise behaviors of tobacco dependence treatment, but are much less likely to engage in “next steps” consistent with sophisticated management of chronic illness.  Important presuppositions regarding the potential “success” of tobacco-related patient interactions are likely limiting physician engagement by favoring the most secure visit outcome despite the limited potential for health gains. Innovative approaches to counteracting the cognitive biases limiting estimations of success probabilities seem to effectively reverse this pattern and provide clues to improving the adoption of target clinical behaviors.  Given the enormous access the healthcare system has to dependent patients, re-thinking longstanding traditions may have a profound impact on the tobacco epidemic.
