Overview

Nicotine is a poisonous substance contained in tobacco leaves. When products made from tobacco leaves are smoked, dipped or chewed, nicotine chemically attaches to receptors in the brain. This produces an effect that can be either relaxing or arousing. Continued use of nicotine causes addiction. That is, the user becomes dependent on nicotine and its effects on the mind and body.


There are two main types of tobacco products: 1) smokable and 2) smokeless. Smokable tobacco products include cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco. Smokeless tobacco products include chewing tobacco, and moist and dry snuff.
