Tobacco use is not a habit, it is an addiction, and nicotine is what keeps people addicted.

Nicotine is in all tobacco products. It makes quitting hard. The average person tries to quit about seven times before succeeding. Quitting can be difficult, but not impossible.

 

El consumo de tabaco no es un hábito, es una adicción. La nicotina es lo que hace adictas a las personas y se encuentra en todos los productos de tabaco. Eso hace que sea difícil abandonarlo. En promedio, las personas que desean dejar de fumar lo intentan unas siete veces antes de lograrlo. Dejar de fumar puede ser difícil pero no es imposible.
