Nearly one-quarter of the global population continues to use nicotine/tobacco products, and tobacco cigarette smoking remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The increased availability and uptake of novel nicotine delivery systems (e.g., e-cigarettes) over the last ten years has further demonstrated that the critical global health problem of nicotine/tobacco addiction shows no sign of going away. Research over the past several decades has focused on improving methods for assessing and treating nicotine/tobacco addiction, determining the most impactful and cost-effective methods for reducing use of nicotine products, and better understanding the complex interplay between pharmacological, psychological, and social determinants of nicotine/tobacco use behavior.
