Smoking is the single most known preventable cause of death in many countries. The World Health Organization (WHO) attributes 4.9 million deaths a year to tobacco smoking, a figure that is expected to rise to more than 10 million by 2030 if no action is taken. The morbidity and mortality associated with tobacco use is shifting from developed to developing countries [3,4] which are almost 70% of those death will occur
