Abstract

The goal of this chapter is to introduce the reader to the world of tobacco smoking, the role of nicotine in inducing a nicotine addiction, as well as to be confident with some tools in measuring nicotine dependence and motivation to quit. Moreover, it will serve to give an update overview about genetic risk factors for smoking behavior going in depth with molecular and biological aspects and to describe the role of genetic determinants in initiation and cessation of cigarette smoking.
