Behaviour and Health Risks of Addiction

1. Women are the fastest growing population of smokers. Why are more women smoking than ever before? Are there any unique concerns for women smokers?
2. Compare and contrast the health effects of smoking cigarettes, cigars, and smokeless tobacco. Also discuss why they are not all the same in terms of health risks.
3. Choose one illicit drug and describe the following aspects: what it is made from, the routes of administration, the effects (long and short term) and whether or not dependency develops.
4. Describe one of the behavioral addictions and explain why you would or would not consider it a true addiction.
