Nicotine

'Smoking is good for you', according to an old Arab proverb. 'The dogs will not bite you because you smell so bad; thieves will not rob you at night because you cough in your sleep and you will not suffer the indignities of old age because you will die when you are relatively young.'

Tobacco smoking is the largest single, preventable cause of death and disease in Australia. It has been estimated to have caused approximately 20 000 deaths in 1991, over six times the number of deaths from road accidents. 2 Diseases attributed to smoking are summarised in Figure 18.1 .
