Tobacco addiction and treatment

J. E. Henningfield

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Scientific findings show that the pathophysiology of tobacco addiction involves changes in structure and function of the nervous system produced by chronic exposure to tobacco delivered nicotine. This has implications for preventing cardiovascular disease and other diseases attributed to cigarette smoking. Specifically, there are medications and behavioral therapies that's can be used to help establish smoking cessation and thereby greatly reduce the risk of many diseases. The scientific findings also have implications for developing policies to more effectively control tobacco attributable disease in the U.S. and globally.
