Every second person who is a smoker dies due to a health problem caused by smoking. We lose 110 thousand people on account of an illness of smoking per year in our country. Cigarette is not only harmful for the smoker, but also people around him/her. Using cigarette and other tobacco products is an addiction and addiction is a disease. It is patients' right to seek professional help about it like any other disease.
