Nicotine is hazardous to human body and adversely affects almost all systems of the body. Side stream smoke also called second hand smoke is as hazardous as for primary smokers. An increased risk of development of chronic obstructive lung disease and lung cancers has been reported in many studies. Smoke free work places seem to be the only option to reduce such hazards. This strategy must go on simultaneously along with established smoking cessation programs. An insight into the factors leading to nicotine addiction must also be taken care of.
