Tobacco Use Disorder

What is Tobacco Use Disorder?    

 

 Tobacco Use Disorder is also known as Smoking or Nicotine Addiction.  Nicotine addiction is when a person becomes dependent on nicotine. Being dependent on a substance such as nicotine means that there is a physical change in how your body reacts to a substance.  It also means that your body will have a reaction when you stop using the substance. Nicotine is found in tobacco products such as cigarettes, snuff, chewing tobacco, cigars, or pipes.
