NICOTINE DEPENDENCE


Nicotine dependence is a state of dependence upon nicotine. Nicotine is a highly addictive chemical found in the tobacco plant. Nicotine dependence is a chronic, relapsing disease defined as a compulsive craving to use the drug, despite harmful social consequences. Tolerance is another component of drug dependence. Nicotine dependence develops over time as a person continues to use nicotine. There is an increased frequency of nicotine dependence in people with anxiety disorders. But besides nicotine, tobacco cigarettes and smokeless tobacco contain many cancer-causing agents and other harmful chemicals. The nearly 4,000 chemicals found in tobacco have physical, mental, and psychological effects. Using tobacco leads to grave health complications, including lung cancer, emphysema, chronic bronchitisleukemia, heart disease, stroke etc.., Nicotine dependence is a serious public health concern due to it being one of the leading causes of avoidable deaths worldwide.
