Abstract

The health toll from tobacco use is well described in the developed world. In developing countries, we will be seeing an increased incidence of tobacco-related disease due to the spreading epidemic of tobacco use around the globe. Tobacco use is fostered and perpetuated by the addictive properties of nicotine. Cigarette smoking is the most addictive form of tobacco use. The most significant health risks are also related to the use of tobacco in the form of cigarettes. This brief review will describe the addictive properties of nicotine which are due to its pharmacological properties and pharmacokinetic profile when smoked. Effective treatment strategies for nicotine addiction, including behavioural and pharmacological treatment, will also be briefly described.
