Tobacco dependence is a widespread chronic disorder. There is hardly a physical condition which is not triggered or aggravated by steady tobacco use. In Germany, more than 100,000 people die of smoking (data from the Federal Statistical Office) annually, more than in traffic, domestic or other accidents.
