New NSDUH Report: Nicotine Dependence: 2006

In the United States, tobacco is used more widely than illicit drugs, and it is implicated in more deaths each year than alcohol and illicit drugs combined. In 2006, 72.9 million Americans aged 12 or older (29.6 percent of the population) were current (i.e., past-month) users of tobacco, and 84.5 percent of these users smoked cigarettes. Nicotine dependence, which is measured for cigarette users, has been found to be associated with increased risk of alcohol and illicit drug use and of mental disorders.
