Hi dear,
for tobacco DE addiction first of all motivation of patient is important.
without motivation it is difficult to quit.
there are many medication which help you to quit
1. Bupropion
2. nicotine replacement gum or lozenges
3. benzodiazepins which helps to relive withdrawal anxiety features.
for better choice consult psychiatrist and give detail history
also counselling helps to quit tobacco.
Thank you
