This book is a compact, evidence-based, readable book that offers a useful update on smoking cessation. It lists important historical landmarks in tobacco control and illustrates some of the current measures to limit tobacco use in different countries. It summarises the main pharmacokinetic and pathophysiological, effects of smoking / nicotine on the central nervous system and cardiovascular system, before describing the effects of the different pharmacotherapies currently available to help smokers stop. Further sections describe how important smoking and smoking cessation is to particular groups of patients, how they should be best approached and the benefits of smoking cessation specific to their illness.
