In brief: Smoking in CAD
Secondary prevention guidelines emphasize smoking cessation for good reason.
One's chance of a future cardiac event is worsened by continuing to smoke. Since someone with a stent already knows that they are at higher future risk (they are compared with someone without CAD history) then doing everything possible to reduce thy risk (like quitting smoking) is important.
