Chapter 8 of Addiction Medicine addresses the epidemiology and pharmacology of nicotine, and the mechanisms by which smoking causes harm. The full spectrum of clinical interventions to assist smokers is covered, from screening and brief intervention, clinical assessment, diagnosis, and physical examination of a smoker, laboratory tests, and screening and diagnostic instruments for nicotine through to comprehensive management of a person who is dependent on nicotine. The chapter addresses the range of smoking cessation approaches, including both pharmacotherapies and behavioural approaches. The chapter also includes practical harm reduction approaches for smokers who are not yet willing or able to stop smoking.
