  • Nicotine dependence

    Addiction to nicotine does not happen quickly, after using tobacco once or twice; it develops over time. Most smokers go through a series of steps from experimentation to regular use on their way to becoming addicted. Particularly in the industrialized countries, most people addicted to nicotine initiated smoking during adolescence. Since a typical smoker takes 10 puffs on each cigarette, a person who smokes a pack of cigarettes a day (20 cigarettes per pack) will receive 200 doses of nicotine daily. No other drug is dosed at such a high frequency. This conditioning, in addition to the presence of nicotine, is critical to the addiction process.

    Nicotine nasal spray is available in other countries, but not permitted for sale in Australia. The gum and lozenge come in 4 mg and 2 mg doses, while the inhaler and tablet come in the 2 mg dose only. Sets of patches come in three sizes: the 24-hour patch has dosages of 21 mg, 14 mg and 7 mg, and the 16-hour patch has dosages of 15 mg, 10 mg and 5 mg.Half of adult Indigenous Australians (50%), were current daily smokers.Smoking was associated with poorer health outcomes among Indigenous Australians.  Nicotine is as addictive as heroin and cocaine, and it has the paradoxical effects of being a stimulant and a depressant.
