Bryan and Jon talk about the burden and costs of smoking on society, and ways of talking to patients about their smoking habits with the goal of helping them quit using some powerful statistics. They discuss the importance of uncovering the social and genetic backgrounds of developing smoking habits that are hard to get rid of. By the end of this lecture you will also have an understanding of what a nicotine roller coaster is, and why nicotine is a special drug that develops addiction on the long run.

In this lesson you will find out more about how genomics predispose someone to develop more addictive behaviors. Bryan talks about the link between coffee and cigarette: how nicotine increases your body's rate of metabolizing caffeine by an increased CYP1A2 enzyme activity, and how it affects people who are trying to quit smoking. You will also learn about the correlation among rapid metabolization induced by smoking, genomic predispositions, commonly used medication and the development of certain types of cancer.
