I can attest

Nicotine and tobacco related products are the most addictive drug on earth, possibly more addicting than heroin (although I've never tried it - I have been prescribed opiates in the past), and it is harder to get off cigarettes than painkillers after a major accident. I'm no fan of the mega tax rate that has been put on cigarettes here in NY, but the success rate of someone attempting to quit, with additional assistance, is something like 10%.
