Did you know smoking is not a habit?
Tobacco addiction is a chronic disease requiring specific treatment. This is due to the addictive components in the substances found in tobacco.
Smoking is a personal activity, yet it usually begins in a social setting. The Unit for the Comprehensive Treatment of Tobacco Addiction focuses on all aspects related to the smoker: physical, psychological and emotional.
