Tobacco nicotine products come in many forms. Irrespective of the form you get them in, the common denominator is the nicotine content. So long as the presence of nicotine is evident, addiction is inevitable says doctor Dalal Akoury MD, President and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center. Form her several decades of experience in this discipline doctor Akoury reiterates that cigarette smoking is dangerous for your health and people around you. Anytime you smoke in public or in the comfort of your living room, and so long as there is somebody around you. The danger escalates to them. Tobacco nicotine products can be administer in several other ways besides smoking. The modes of administration may include chewing, sniffing or inhaling their vapors. The following are therefore some of the tobacco nicotine products:

Tobacco nicotine products usage modalities: Smoked tobacco products

Be careful with these smoked tobacco products. What you see people do with them is not fun at all.

  • Cigarettes (regular, light, and menthol). No evidence exists that “lite” or menthol cigarettes are safer than regular cigarettes.
  • Cigars and pipes.
  • Bidis and kreteks (clove cigarettes). Bidis are small, thin, hand-rolled cigarettes primarily imported to the United States from India and other Southeast Asian countries. Kreteks sometimes referred to as clove cigarettes contain about 60-80% tobacco and 20-40% ground cloves. Flavored bidis and kreteks are banned in the United States because of the ban on flavored cigarettes.
  • Hookahs or water pipes. Practiced for centuries in other countries, smoking hookahs has become popular among teens in the United States. Hookah tobacco comes in many flavors, and the pipe is typically passed around in groups. As with smoking cigarettes, water pipe smoking still delivers the addictive drug nicotine and is at least as toxic as cigarette smoking.

Tobacco nicotine products usage modalities: Smokeless tobacco products

This is where tobacco is not burned and no smoke is involved. With these products one can:

  • Chewing tobacco, which is placed between the cheek and gums.
  • Snuff, ground tobacco which can be sniffed if dried or placed between the cheek and gum.
  • Dip, moist snuff that is used like chewing tobacco.
  • Snus, a small pouch of moist snuff.
  • Dissolvable products, including lozenges, orbs, sticks, and strips.

Tobacco nicotine products usage modalities: Electronic cigarettes

Also called e-cigarettes, electronic nicotine delivery systems, or e-cigs, electronic cigarettes are smokeless, battery-operated devices that deliver flavored nicotine to the lungs without burning tobacco (the usual source of nicotine). In most e-cigarettes, puffing activates the battery-powered heating device, which vaporizes the liquid in the cartridge. The resulting vapor is then inhaled what is commonly known as vaping.

Finally the effects of all these tobacco nicotine products are the same and dangerous to human health. Timely treatment solution is therefore advised.
