Smoking cessation - Definition


Tobacco smoking is characterized by a consumption of products containing tobacco, and an addiction to substances that it contains, notably nicotine. It may provoke chronic illnesses and cancers that are potentially fatal. The cessation of tobacco smoking thus consists of no longer consuming tobacco. It may be aided by medical intervention supervised by a tobacco addiction specialist, nicotine substitutes, drug treatments based on psychotropics or antidepressants, psychotherapy, acupuncture, or hypnosis.
