It has been suggested that nicotine addiction is as hard to beat as heroin, although without the serious social consequences. Nicotine is a fast acting and addictive drug, creating a long term habit notoriously difficult to drop. Since the links between cancer, heart disease and smoking have been openly acknowledged, the number of people seeking to stop smoking has mushroomed. Bearing in mind the damage caused by long term smoking and the enormous benefits to be gained by stopping, there are numerous opportunities for the therapist in this field.
