Tobacco is a plant that contains nicotine, a drug that speeds up activity in our central nervous system but has relaxing effects too. Tobacco is available in many forms, including cigarettes, pipe tobacco, chewing tobacco, and snuff or snus (a powder that is sniffed or put between the lower lip or cheek and gums). Nicotine also is available in non-tobacco products, including gum, patches and other smoking cessation aids.
Tobacco is the plant used to make cigarettes, cigars, and other products. It contains nicotine, a stimulant.
Addiction is not alien to me. During my childhood days I became aware that addiction is a vital part of my family tree.
