About the book
Smoking Tobacco has several health consequences affecting the morbidity and mortality of users. Historically it was viewed as an unharmful substance which later proved to be untrue. Health consequences associated with tobacco use have been well documented and nicotine dependence has been a public health threat for the world. Different types of tobacco products will be reviewed (eg. e-cigarettes, cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and more). In addition, this text will have the goal to provide readers with review treatment options and public health policies that are used to help reduce the use of tobacco.
The aim of the book will be to briefly describe special populations and how to approach management in these patients. The goal is to provide reliable information to users and practitioners to help individuals quit smoking. This includes how to initiate therapy, how to monitor, drug interactions, contraindications to therapy, and much more. At the end of each chapter readers will understand the evolution of tobacco use, nicotine dependence and its management.
